About Hawkes Bay Angels

HB Angel Investment Group is a club for those passionate about growing the base of entrepreneurial talent in Hawkes Bay and for those who will enjoy being part of the thriving New Zealand angel investment community (see NZ Angel Association). Our two primary goals are to foster early stage investment and to provide continuous best practise education to members. 

In addition to drawing on a pool of talented club members, HB Angels will execute a strategy of launching highly targeted funds that will invest in commercial and social ventures led by talented entrepreneurs.

Funds may have a commercial focus e.g. artisan brands, agri-tech or a social focus e.g. health, drug addiction, homelessness.



Our Mission -

The vision of using the private sector to unlock, support and attract fresh entrepreneurial talent to Hawkes Bay through robust opportunity identification and the building of investment portfolios under a fund structure is the first of its kind in Hawkes Bay.

Our Board - to be announced

HB Angels will be governed by a diversified board that can bring the very best high growth and high impact thinking to Hawkes Bay. The thinking aims to encourage or reposition talent and associated ventures/programmes to areas which provide the greatest social and economic impact.
