Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa Application- Angel Investors

If you're looking for seed capital to support your entrepreneurial efforts in preparing for a Tier 1 entrepreneur visa application, then you will need to consider the use of angel investors. Angel investors are people who invest in entrepreneurs and their ideas and often club together to invest as a group into an idea.

There are many sites that now allow angel investors to club together in order to invest in an entrepreneur and their business. As banking interest on savings has gone down, investors are looking at opportunities such as angel investing to gain returns on their investment that they cannot get anywhere else.

Seed capital

From the entrepreneur's perspective, angel investing is an excellent opportunity to market your business to savvy investors and to gain the necessary investment into your business that will be needed to satisfy the capital requirements of the Tier 1 entrepreneur visa application.

A major part of the application process is seed funding and having this in place from a source such as angel investing means you get excellent quality investment from people who have assessed your business. As angel investors tend to be successful business people in their own right, it is something of a badge of honor to gain investment that way.

Impressive for officials

The gaining of seed capital from angel investment will show Home Office officials that there is a market for your business and that investors are willing to stake their own money in the ideas that you are putting forward. This cannot help but impress Home Office officials who are looking to see whether your idea has the required stability to stand up on its own merits.

First steps

To get started you will need to register with one of the many sites that have popped up over the last few years. The top site is angelist.co and is widely regarded as one of the premium sites and has major investors involved. If you managed to get your funding through a site as well regarded as this then your Tier 1 entrepreneur visa application would be very straightforward. If your business if somewhat niche then it might be worth getting involved with the appropriate trade association and seeing what advice they can offer on funding, as they may have sources that are not well known. At the very least they should be able to help you network in your niche.

How we can help

Once you have some funding in place we can help to create your application for the Tier 1 entrepreneur visa. The visa allows you to live in the UK for up to 3 years and 4 months and set up and run a start-up business as proposed in your business plan.

"Anna Foley was the lawyer helping my partner obtain an EEA EFM visa. She was outstanding. Handling the case with constant correspondence over a lengthy, lockdown delayed 7-month application process. Her expert advice guided us successfully through some difficult times as a result of COVID-19. Some of the best service I have received for any service ever! Often replying to emails late at night, offering to send additional correspondence to the home office and going above and beyond in handling our case! Well done and thank you Reiss Edwards and thank you Anna!!".
