Putting together a list of Angel investors in tech in Europe

Next Story

Frackulous, the new mobile apps show

I was struck by how small, inaccurate and out of date this recent list of Angel investors in tech startups in Europe was. It’s time we published one on TechCrunch Europe. So feel free to leave your own nominations in the comments below. Meanwhile you can also contact me on mike AT mbites dot com to nominate tech angel investors, but remember to name the recent deals they’ve done.

    good initiative, mike! checked the same site earlier today and had the same idea.. it’s about time to increase the transparency here!

  • http://theopenfund.com George Tziralis

    Turned this list into a wiki at listiki – http://listiki.com/angel-investors-in-europe/ looking forward to everyone’s contributions.

    -may- worth having a look at my twitter list:

    Interesting that Manoj was just talking about this same thing over the weekend too, see http://twitter.com/manojranaweera/status/19557701280

    I think he started pulling some names from my own Twitter list, see http://twitter.com/eileentso/vc-and-angels, but to reiterate those active in Europe and add a few others I’d forgotten to mention to Manoj, I would note/again::

    all 3 of us from @whitebearyard:
    Stefan Glaenzer @stefanglaenzer
    Robert Dighero @robertdighero
    myself @eileentso, … along with

    Alex Zubillaga @alexzubillaga
    Tom Hulme @thulme
    Saul Klein @cape
    Sean Park @nauiokaspark
    Esther Dyson @edyson
    Max Niederhoffer @maxniederhofer
    Taavet Hinrikus @taavet
    Fabrice Grinda @fabricegrinda
    Sherry Coutu @scoutu
    Mark Zaleski

    …and surely there are more (will add as I think of them)

    PS: Apologies if the formatting got completely screwed up in this comment/field.

      Eileen, Thanks for your help

      My list http://twitter.com/#/list/manojranaweera/angels-vcs now has about 135 angels and vcs. Robert Scoble has over 400.

      It is harder to understand who a genuine angel is, as some of them invest individually as well as through VC firms.

      The second problem is finding quality data on recent deals.

      Such monitoring no doubt require considerable amount of effort. I am not yet convinced that most angels will volunteer to provide this data in the first place except for a handful.

      Techcrunch, Techcelerate and others certainly can fill the gap by developing segmented lists.

      my two pence worth…

      Best regards
      Manoj

    Do any of these invest in hardware start-ups? They all seem to be focused on web and apps. Which is understandable I guess, but atoms are the new bits, you know… :-)

    Brendan here from AngelList.

    Mike, you’re absolutely right that the list from Europe is slim right now (although we’re pretty happy with the quality of the European Angels we have so far).

    We don’t build the list – Angels sign up themselves. So it’s more a function of word spreading faster in the US Angel communities than through Europe. That’s normal, as the initial spread was largely through word of mouth.

    The local lists are changing that though, and we’re expecting quick growth in local areas such as Boston, NY, Austin and through Europe. We’ll continue to provide more localized lists as more Angels sign up from different regions.

    That said, we’re keen to keep attracting top angels in Europe as we see more quality seed-stage European startups to send them – if you all have thoughts on how to do this better, please share!

    Good to see a list developing here. We’d love to have them join at http://angel.co/apply. Finally, we have a backlog of applications to process, so the Europe list will expand this week.

    Thanks for the feedback,
    Brendan

    Any names of investors with e-commerce portfolio would be welcome…

  • http://paulfwalsh.com Paul Walsh

    Any angel list is very likely to be out of date, or at least, inaccurate – as most angels don’t like to be in the public domain.

    That said, providing a list of those who do want to be made public, is a good idea.

    That’s a great initiative and I don’t mind being added to the list.

    There were actually a lot of interesting business angels and early stage VCs at Seedcamp yesterday and they should be on this list! I guess Reshma will add them on the Seedcamp summit list she seems to be putting together.

    Looking for angels in Europe. Im an American who moved to Italy some years ago to open Metrolution S.r.l, we offer digital In-tunnel advertising in Italy. We hold the exclusive license from Submedia llc. Ive spoke with some Angel groups in The States who said the idea was good but the location was too far for their taste. Does any one know any Angel groups in Europe closer to Italy. As well perhaps those who have interest in investing out of their country.

    Thx

    Great generator!

    What is the problem of getting more power from conventional power generator, used in its construction principle of the intersection of copper outside magnetic fields? The problem is that the generator rotor can not be unlimited bulky and heavy, it creates a friction of the rotor in the stator, which force the steam turbine or water flow can not overcome, and the current generator simply will not rotate. And if I tell you and show you an example as a finger of one hand can crank out multi-ton rotor hydropower it slightly, to upgrade? If I show you how to make your country supplier of electricity for America and Europe for several thousand dollars? How much do you earn on such technology?
    But I will tell you more, I will explain to your engineers, designers how to get to the generator rotor simple fold more tension without increasing its weight, ie I will tell you how to swing 100% of current unit attached to generator mechanical power flow of water, steam or wind!
    Nobody in the world, and I’ve been watching all the innovation that can not think, as I am. All of the incredible and amazing to me as an appetizer, a main dish – the engine on the water I’m selling to humanity as expensive as it is not necessary either your company or your country, nor the whole of Europe and America! I am selling it as a ticket to a future without the mud, stench, poverty and war!
    I’m writing a proposal for cooperation of the largest companies and the leaders of the richest states – I’m not going to waste time on the patenting and maintaining the rights to their inventions, so take a partner company, for which it is generally not a problem. Patents, keep secret, reproduce, get over profit and prosper, not forgetting to allocate 1% of net profit cunning engineer Southerner for his ideas, even after you start earning on my own innovation!
    That’s all I wanted to tell you, think and make decisions. Always on the phone in Tashkent: 998973447299. Speak and think only in Russian.
