Galway Business Angel Network Session

6th of June 2007 by admin

The Halo Business Angel Partnership is holding an information evening on private equity investment at Galway Technology Centre on Tuesday 19th June starting at 6.30pm.

The Halo Business Angel Partnership is a joint initiative between Enterprise Ireland, InterTrade Ireland and the Irish Business and Innovation Centres. It was established to match private investors with good quality early stage businesses, the emphasis being on technology oriented businesses with good export led growth potential.

Speaking with the West region co-ordinator Gerry Mackey today, he was very optimistic about the role of private equity in funding early stage companies. He stated that private equity is “the hot topic in international investment circles” and that “with uncertainty in other investment areas such as property, investment in high potential start-ups offers successful business people with excellent opportunities to diversify their portfolios.” He is hoping to attract potential investors as well as entrepreneurs.

Gerry certainly knows his stuff. He spent many years as a commercial banker in the west of Ireland and was involved in providing services to many companies which are now very successful in the traditional sectors. The format for the evening combines talks around the fundamentals of private equity investment with refreshments and the opportunity to schmooze.
