About MAINstream

MAINstream is a network for business angel investors established by Michelmores in 2019 to help accelerate the growth of angel investing in the region. 

If you are interested in joining the network and attending our events please email for further details.

How it works

We hold pitch events approximately six times each year. During these, high-growth early-stage companies are invited to present their businesses to members of the angel network. 

Before the pitch event, applicant companies are shortlisted by an investor selection panel and three businesses invited to pitch. Each business gets around 10 minutes to present, followed by questions from the investors.

We normally expect around 10 investors to attend each pitch event, but this will vary depending on availability and interest in the applicant companies.

Following the pitch, if applicants are in agreement, a copy of the presentations and contact details are shared with the whole network (currently 45 members). 

The MAINstream team is always on hand to answer any questions, but at this stage we leave the investors to follow up directly with organisations of interest to them.
