There are so many great British Asian Entrepreneurs that are doing amazing things.
Yet even with us doing great, somehow we are all working in individual silos and the lack of collaboration is holding us back.
This is leading to a tiny % of VC funding going to BAE’s and them finding difficulties even getting into the room or even being aware of the funding options available. And yet there are also a bunch of investors or being who have successful business that want to invest in BAE’s but they don't know who they are.
How We Can Help
1. Submit your deck to The BAE Network
While we are not a fund, we are well connected to many investors of different backgrounds and use that network to help open doors.
Some ground rules:
- We only look at decks submitted through our process - please don't DM or email us we lose time in organisation.
- We will guarantee a response within 30 days of your deck being submitted
- We are open to companies at all stages in their investment process from early Pre-Seed Investments to companies that are IPO ready
- The deck will undergo an initial screening.
- The deck will be then reviewed by our in house Investment Committee made up of BAE HQ Community Members that work for some of the leading Venture Capital and Growth Funds within the UK that are donating their time to.
- If the deck receives a specific average rating it is then passed to the next stage and if not, we will provide some feedback on the reasoning for this.
- We will then decide who would be the best fit in terms of introductions to investors or strategic connections within our network
