The evening of the first day of the UKBAA Investment Summit kicked off with a black tie gala dinner and awards event. Awards were nominated from a range of businesses, investors and intermediaries. All eight of Angels Den’s entries were shortlisted with Clear Returns going on to win the award for Best Women-Led Investment of the Year, selected by a leading panel of industry experts. Having already won an award earlier in the year for Innovator of the Year, Clear Returns’ CEO, Vicky Brock, was exuberant.
Clear Returns, is a Glasgow-based technology company that helps retailers cut the cost of online returns through predictive analytics software, raised £160k through Angels Den last month.
Vicky Brock, CEO of Clear Returns said:
“I was delighted to win the award and I’m so glad that we are seeing more women entrepreneurs in technology based businesses. Angels Den was a great support in helping me raise the finance I needed”.
“We were really pleased to see that all of our entries to the UKBAA Awards were shortlisted and it’s fantastic that Clear Returns have won yet another award”.
Angels Den’s Sally Goodsell was in attendance on the night and said:
“The quality of the entries shortlisted and competition this year was just amazing, it must have been a real challenge for the judges to pick just one winner from each category. It was a proud moment when Clear Returns, who found funding through Angels Den, received their award”.
Angels Den has raised over £16 million in investment for start-ups. Their angel investors also offer expertise, support and useful contacts.
