Seeking finance?

Dow Schofield Watts Angels brings together early-stage technology businesses with experienced entrepreneurs and investors. Our angels understand the challenges facing growing businesses and have been through the entire growth cycle of building and selling a business themselves, and are now willing to invest time and money in helping others.

We are looking for promising early-stage technology companies with inspired founders, particularly those with early revenues but which may fall short of the size required by most technology venture capitalists.

The network invests up to £500k of equity finance in each business in the initial funding round. Dow Schofield Watts Angels also invests alongside other funders to deliver larger funding rounds.

Companies seeking funding are asked to submit a business plan, which includes an overview of the company together with a brief financial summary detailing how much investment you are seeking and how it will be used. Please email your business plan to

Dow Schofield Watt Angels was launched by the North’s leading independent advisory business Dow Schofield Watts, and is operated by its private equity arm, PHD Equity Partners LLP which is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.
