Business Angel Network Nijmegen

The Business Angels Network Nijmegen (BANN) is an initiative from Briskr and Oost NL to connect angel investors with promising startups in health and hightech in the metropole region Arnhem-Nijmegen. In three events per year, 12 startups in total are given the opportunity to pitch their business idea and investment opportunity to an audience of interested investors. The normal range of investment is between 50K to 300K but in some cases a combination can be made with other investment channels. The event is invite only.

The meetings are held at Slot Doddendael in Ewijk (next to Nijmegen), start around 16:00 and are combined with dinner until 20:00.

For investors

The BANN is a network of 100+ investors interested in health and hightech sectors. Of these, normally around 40 investors are present during the meetings. Prior to the meeting, you will receive information about the startups to determine if a visit is justified. Beside the investment opportunities the BANN is also a social gathering including plenty of opportunity to network with other angels during dinner. 

For startups

In order to ensure interesting investment opportunities for the investors we have organised a selection and support proces. One of the obligated elements for the startups in this proces is the valuation workshop. The four startups selected for each meeting are also supported with advice on patents, certification, legal aspects etc as well as an intensive pitch training.
