ESIL is a Pan-European community aiming to improve angel investment market, stimulate cross border investment opportunities, find new deals, connect the most relevant networks and build a tailored training programme for local ecosystems.

ESIL, the Early Stage Investing Launchpad, develops a capacity building programme for early-stage investors in Europe, facilitating the take up of Angel Investing, overcoming obstacles related to market outreach and engaging key actors e.g. entrepreneurs, unconventional early stage investors and crowdfunding.

ESIL provides a blend of online and offline activities including high quality training materials, a powerful online networking matchmaking platform and access to the best practices and knowledge of the world's most effective Business Angel and early stage investors

The programme is developed to create a dynamic investment environment by creating new leaders within the Business Angel and wider investment community, encourage more individuals to become investors and improve the effectiveness of the investment process.

META has the privilege to coordinate this programme in partnership with Business Angels Europe (BAE), the European Business and Innovation Centre Network (EBN), the European CrowdfundingNetwork (ECN), GoBeyond, BPI France and LINC Scotland.

This is what we want to achieve:

  • Sustainable, comprehensive strategy for building capacity in early-stage investments across Europe
  • Higher levels of early-stage expertise in Europe
  • Increase the number of early stage investments in Europe, including cross-border.
