What is Angels’ Den?
Our inaugural Angels’ Den is a new and innovative way for charities in Buckinghamshire to bid for funding. At the end of November, ten charities will pitch to five Angels for a share of £100,000. Each of our Angels has contributed £10,000 to the pot and The Clare Foundation has matched funded with its own contribution of £50,000.
The charities will have two minutes each to pitch to the Angels and this will be followed by a Q&A session. After each charity has pitched, and the Angels have deliberated, we will find out how much each charity has been awarded. The good news is that every charity will be given a grant.
We are here to support all the charities throughout the process and this has included running a special presentation training day with Marcus Thomlinson, founder of The Mindset Revolution, to help provide hints and tips about effective public speaking. Ceri-Jane Hackling, founder of CerubPR, was also on had to advise on PR and communications.
“It was one of the best training sessions I’ve attended. I’ve been in the charity sector for more than 20 years, so it was lovely to have something which tested and supported me so much. Thank you.”
Lee Lloyd, Head of Fundraising, Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity
