About Minerva

What is Minerva?

Minerva is primarily a network of Business Angels. We do have Corporate Venturers and links with many Venture Capital and co-investment Funds and often invest alongside them, however, most clients come to us looking for angel finance. We are part of the University of Warwick Science Park and offer a lot more than just access to finance.

What does Minerva do?

Businesses:- Photo credit: Alan Cleaver (www.flickr.com/photos/alancleaver/4430330460/)Minerva helps companies attract equity funding from it’s own network of Business Angels and will make appropriate introductions to relevant Venture Capital Funds as well as access other forms of finance from suitable sources including Banks.

Sometimes companies will also need a variety of support to help achieve their ambitions and Minerva as part of the University of Warwick Science Park are often able to access local, regional and national business support services and grants when available.

Minerva have an extensive database of private investors and operate seven  Investor Syndicates from different locations ( Coventry, Wolverhampton, Keele, Loughborough and Malvern)who meet monthly viewing pre-selected opportunities for potential investment.

Whilst we are comfortable working with companies from most sectors and stage of maturity, we do tend to specialise in early stage technology ventures.

Investors : The Minerva process ensures investors are introduced to the widest possible range of opportunities both as individuals registered on the database and collectively through their syndicate membership.

We try and inform investors throughout the year on relevant issues and when appropriate invite experts to speak on investment related matters at syndicate meetings. We also maintain close links with other Business Angel Networks and both the local and wider business community as much as possible.
