About GC Angels: Established in 2015, GC Angels is the most active early-stage investor in the North West, uniting angel investors, institutional investment and in-house co-funds to support Digital Creative and Tech startups in the region.

About EVE: Co-founded in Jan 2020 by Harveen Gill, Sue Webster and Greg Tufnell, EVE launched in response to the fact that only 13% of Business Angels in the UK are Female! Focusing on consumer, sustainability, packaging, energy & renewables, and the automotive sectors, EVE focuses on early-stage investing for robust start-ups and SMEs and on Pre-Seed – Series A funding.
Extensive external research and feedback from the EVE community demonstrate that Females would like more granular information, and the opportunity to ask questions in a “safe place” developing into the confidence to invest. Co – Investment is also an area of great interest. As a result, EVE has launched the EVE Lab – a series of educational events that will grow confidence amongst the Female Investor and would-be investor community. EVE has hosted some 15 monthly Pitch Events and showcased 50 start-ups and SMEs to date!
