Andy Ayim MBE

Founder of The Angel Investing School

The Angel Investing School trains professionals on how to get started investing in startups with as little as £1,000. The mission aims to get more women and people of colour on the Cap Table to close the wealth gap. As an angel investor, he has invested in startups such as Tambua Health, Elexsys and Subly. Alongside this, he is an honorary member of The Green Angel Syndicate, investing in the fight against climate change, part of The Atomico Angel programme 2021 and an Ambassador at Huckletree.
