Research and education for the early stage ecosystem


We help individual angel investors and groups of early-stage investors to perform better. We do this by generating and transferring the knowledge needed to succeed today and tomorrow. We are involved in research and impart up-to-date insights and best practices available in suitable formats.

We have also developed the CBA (Certified Business Angel), the world’s first certification for individual angel investors (ISO 17024).

The Institute


As an independent international initiative, the Business Angel Institute works across borders and with all kinds of stakeholders in order to:

  • Increase the number of active business angels
  • Deliver best practices grounded in both, experience and research
  • Enable knowledge sharing by connecting angels internationally

The Management Board


Our training program is designed primarily for individuals who invest directly in small but growth-oriented companies.

Because of the comprehensive and up-to-date nature of the program, both newcomers and experienced angels will significantly expand their horizons.

If you would like to bring this to your own constituency anywhere in the world, we can be your partner, saving you a lot of work.
