The Halo Business Angel Network's (HBAN)have announced their line-up for their 2021 Conference, which is geared towards encouraging wider involvement in business angel investing across the island of Ireland.


According to HBAN Ireland’s angel investment community continues to go from strength to strength, providing fertile ground for start-ups to thrive with access to early-stage funding from individual angel investors and syndicates. HBAN, which is a joint initiative of Enterprise Ireland, InterTradeIreland and Invest Northern Ireland, says its members have now invested more than €121M in start-ups across the island of Ireland since 2007.


Over the past number of years, the annual Conference has attracted hundreds of angel investors, bringing together some of the world’s most influential start-up visionaries. In this year’s virtual setting, the conference will hone in on the overarching theme of ‘Start – Grow – Exit – Repeat’ – charting the angel investor journey and assessing the inroads being made in the space from a technological standpoint, along with  showcasing the litany of investment opportunities and associated benefits to prospective investors.


This year’s conference will feature contributions from Charles Fred (pictured), who co-founded of TrueSpace, a business ecosystem designed to help entrepreneurs scale to the middle market, with his daughter Jamee; Bill Liao, general partner in SOSV and co-founder of the CoderDojo movement; Colin Mason, Professor of Entrepreneurship at University of Glasgow; and Alan Coleman, CEO of Sweepr, the provider of simple care for the connected home. Round table leaders include Ronan Quinlan, Joint CEO of Taoglas, Richard Watson of DBIC Ventures, Faye Walsh-Drouillard, founder of Wake Up Capital and Brian MacNamee, Associate Professor in the UCD School of Computer Science and expert in Machine Learning.


The Conference is expected to attract over 300 attendees, who will gain a firm understanding of the investment landscape in high-potential start-ups in 2021, and the opportunity to broaden their network with hundreds of like-minded angel investors.


As an aside to the bespoke presentations, there will be breakout sessions giving attendees the opportunity to explore topics such as – Artificial Intelligence, Impact Investing, Remote Working, AR/VR, and Transportation – and discuss these strands as they pertain to the angel investor space and early-stage technology companies.


The four-hour event will stream live online from 1:30pm-5:30pm on the afternoon of Thursday 11th February 2021.
