What is Minerva?

Minerva is primarily a network of Business Angels. We do have Corporate Angels who often invest alongside us, however, most clients come to us looking for angel finance.

As we are part of the University of Warwick Science Park, working with Minerva means that we can offer you a wide range of business support services.
