Northamptonshire Investment Meeting planned at Silverstone Innovation Centre

Oxford Innovation is collaborating with a range of Northamptonshire organisations to hold a special Business Angel Investment Meeting for the county on Tuesday 13 September at Silverstone Innovation Centre. The Meeting will enable investors from Northamptonshire and surrounding areas to view investment opportunities in innovative companies, and enjoy a high quality networking session. Attendees will also have the option to join a Formula 1 Testing Session at Silverstone Circuit before the meeting.

Oxford Innovation runs three highly successful investment networks, including Europe’s leading technology investment network, Oxfordshire Investment Opportunity Network (OION), that have helped 90 growing companies raise £19.5 million during the last five years. Oxford Innovation also manages Silverstone Innovation Centre, one of a network of 12 Innovation Centres operated by the company housing over 300 technology businesses.

The Northamptonshire Investment Meeting is being sponsored by Invest Northamptonshire, as lead sponsor, with co-sponsorship provided by HSBC Bank, BKR Haines Watts, West Northamptonshire Development Corporation, and Northamptonshire County Council.

Dr David Kingham, Chief Executive of Oxford Innovation, said:
“There is significant investor demand in Northamptonshire for access to high quality, selected investment opportunities, which offer the potential of high growth and reward, and entrepreneurs need access to a forum where they can raise the funding needed to develop their businesses. So this meeting should fill a gap in the market for both investors and entrepreneurial companies, and we hope that it will lead to an ongoing Northamptonshire Investment Network.

This Investment Meeting has attracted the interest of investors, organisations and professional firms across Northamptonshire and I would particularly like to thank the sponsoring organisations for their strong support.”

Paul Taylor, Chief Executive of Invest Northamptonshire, said:
“It is important for the growth of the county that our entrepreneurs choose to build their businesses here. To support them, we need an effective Investment Network and this event marks a significant step forward in its development.”

Silverstone Innovation Centre, which will be the venue for the first Northamptonshire Angel Investment Network Meeting on 13 September.
