Business Angels play a major role in BayStartUP's investor network. Their share of early-stage startup investments has risen sharply in recent years; they are also important financing partners for startups and VCs in later rounds.

Private investors, business angels and representatives of family offices can obtain pre-selected deal flow for their start-up investments through the following offers:
For our members, we pre-qualify promising startups: From our dealflow we inform you about suitable companies individually. We take into account your thematic focus, the company phase of the start-up, its capital requirements and other factors that are important to you.
Every two months, our investor letter provides you with an overview of all startups currently in the matching process, allowing you exclusive access to our dealflow with insights into the latest innovations in the market.
In a pleasant, confidential setting, we regularly present startups ready for financing. You will have ample opportunity to meet the founders personally and to exchange ideas with other private investors.
At regional events, you can get an optimal overview of startup activities throughout Bavaria and expand your network. The regional events are based on our Business Angel Meetings.
According to feedback from our participants, the "BayStartUP Venture Conferences" are among the most important investor conferences in the German startup scene. We organize this event format three times a year, at which we present selected startups with different focuses to a top-class circle of 60-90 institutional and private investors. At the events you also have the opportunity to engage personally with the entrepreneurs. We actively promote the exchange between private and institutional investors.
At the Business Angel Academy, experts from the venture capital industry share their knowledge in an exclusive setting and support you in starting your activities as a private investor in startups. The format also offers the opportunity to exchange ideas with like-minded people and experts.
Informative events in the morning among private investors: At events such as the BayStartUP Business Angel Breakfasts, we regularly discuss current relevant issues in a small group, e.g. on the topic of "tax aspects and current developments in private direct investments".
Martin Heubeck, H&S Investment GmbH:
BayStartUP is able to efficiently present attractive startups to potential investors. This is due to the very good (pre-)selection for the respective events, and to the structured information that BayStartUP meticulously demands from all startups. The startups are trained to provide this information in the highest possible quality. The result is a pre-selected, qualified deal flow that provides a quick overview to potential investors.
Frank Thelen, Founder and CEO of Freigeist Capital:
We became aware of Smartlane through BayStartUP, and Smartlane is the second company in our portfolio to be supported by BayStartUP after air up. We appreciate the partnership with BayStartUP very much and hope to meet interesting and promising startup teams through the program in the future and of course to help the existing joint startups to achieve sustainable success and growth.
