Dublin, Ireland - The Global Business Angels Network (GBAN) announced today that the Halo Business Angel Network (HBAN) is the newest organization to join its inclusive global community of early-stage investor networks.  

GBAN, part of the Global Entrepreneurship Network, has more than 80 members that meet regularly to share mentorship, training and support to improve investor capacity, amplify the angel voice on regulatory issues, facilitate cross-border investing and remove policy barriers faced by investors. 

“As economies recover from the pandemic, a collaborative global approach is needed to ensure entrepreneurs – who are leading the charge when it comes to regenerating jobs – have access to the right capital at the right time,” said Jonathan Ortmans, president of the Global Entrepreneurship Network and board director at GBAN. “We are thrilled that the Halo Business Angel Network is committed to joining us in this work.” 

HBAN is Ireland’s largest network of business angels and syndicates with more than 15 angel groups across Ireland and abroad.  

“Ireland’s angel ecosystem is maturing and professionalising,” said Siobhan Killen, Communications Manager at HBAN. “We look forward to connecting with other business angel networks to help support and grow the global ecosystem.” 

GBAN is led by a global board of directors with members based in Africa, North America, Asia and Europe. The GBAN annual meeting will be held March 27-30 at the Global Entrepreneurship Congress (GEC). GEC 2021 is anticipated to be one of the first live global gatherings of entrepreneurs, investors, researchers, policymakers and other startup champions since the onset of the pandemic. GBAN delegates will examine the new global landscape through an investor lens. For more information, visit gban.co.
