EBAN 6th Annual Awards Ceremony Winners

Company: EBAN

EBAN, The European Trade Association for Business Angels, Seed Funds, and other Early Stage Market Players and Lewiatan Business Angels announced on 12 May the winners of the 6th Annual EBAN Awards Competition that took place in the Polish National Opera during the EBAN 11th Annual Congress in Warsaw.

The winners of this year’s awards are:

Business Angel of the Year: Francesco Marini Clarelli (Italy)
Deal of the Year: Polidea (Poland)
Early Stage Fund of the Year: Seraphim (UK)
Impact Investment of the Year: EKO-Logic (Poland)
Breakthrough Service/ Tool by a BAN: AngelSoft (USA)

The winners of the awards were selected by a jury panel and have significantly contributed to the development of the European early stage market by contributing at national or European level as role models for business angels, networks of business angels and seed funds. The Awards Ceremony was held on the first evening of the Congress. This year’s Congress was dedicated to co-investment and syndication amongst different actors of the early stage industry and to the ongoing efforts to increase the professionalisation of European angel investors and networks. These efforts enable the so called “informal” sector to be considered as a new and promising asset class, expected to grow from €4 billion today to €10 billion.
