We recently spoke to Cambridge Angels, Simon Thorpe and Phil Donovan about what they do, what they're looking for as investors and why Cambridge is a great place to start a business.
Simon, chair of Cambridge Angels, has invested in over fifty companies, mainly tech focused and in the UK. Phil founded Cambridge Silicon Radio and joined Cambridge Angels after the company was acquired by Qualcomm.
Both bring a wealth of experience to this week's podcast - the first in our Business Basics series. Take a listen to get some great insights into what makes a pitch great, what to avoid and the one thing you need to remember when preparing.
