Hellenic Business Angels Network
The Hellenic Business Angels Network (HeBAN) has been established as a national, non-profit organisation in response to a gap in the Greek entrepreneurial ecosystem of providing sufficient funding and expertise to innovative start-ups in their early stages. While in many countries across the globe it is increasingly Business Angels who can offer this required input when other resources are not available, in Greece there is still a lack of successful and visible angel investing models.
HeBAN is envisioned to create a national platform for bringing together the stakeholders of the Greek start-up ecosystem and help implement a sustainable Business Angels and early stage investors network in the country. While not being active in funding start-ups by itself, HeBAN aims to support with a wide array of activities the formation and cooperation of local Business Angels groups, clubs and networks and motivate and support potential and active Business Angels and other related stakeholders in Greece to contribute to the creation of a functioning eco-system for early stage investment. Services entail, among others, education and training for private investors, interest lobbying, facilitation of networking and high-quality deal-flow, as well as dissemination of latest research and best practices. For entrepreneurs and start-up facilitators, such as incubators, accelerators and others, HeBAN serves as an access point in their search for private investment.
HeBAN is emphasizing the link to the international early stage investor community. HeBAN is the Greek National Member of EBAN (European Trade Association for Business Angels, Seed Funds, and other Early Stage Market) and the National Lead for Greece of GBAN (Global Business Angels Network).
