With you every step of the way

When it comes to representing our angel investors, we hold ourselves to high standards. Regardless of whether this is your first time investing, or you’ve been around the block; if it’s an early stage startup you’re interested in, or looking for something more established, our team will be with you every step of the way.

1

GETTING TO KNOW YOU

Once you’ve registered your interest as an angel investor, a member of our consulting team will get in touch. We want to know why you’re interested in making an investment, the types of industries you may want to explore, and your individual financial goals and circumstances.

2

THE CONFIRMATION STAGE

Now that you’ve chosen to move forward in your investment journey, we’ll get to work. You’ll receive your formal agreement within 1 working day asking you to confirm you’re qualified to join our angel investor network and that you’re happy for us to represent you.

3

FINDING THE RIGHT STARTUP

Here’s where the excitement starts. Our team will use your profile to pair you with the right startup founder to help reach your goals. If you’d like to find out more, we’ll send you a pack about the business, including all the relevant information and documentation you need to make an informed decision.

4

CONNECTING WITH YOUR NEW PARTNER

You want to get to know the founder and maybe make your investment – great! Once we receive your consent (and not before), we’ll put you in touch with the startup founder directly. This is your opportunity to ask any questions you may have and agree on your new investment plan.

5

LOOKING BEYOND YOUR INVESTMENT

At TrendScout, we pride ourselves on equal responsibility and work to represent both the angel investor and the founder consciously. However, we also know that investments can be a daunting process. That’s why we’ll be on hand after you make your choice to answer any questions you may have, and ensure you’re happy with the startup we’ve paired you with. No fees, no strings, no conditions.

Here’s how our process works.
