The Angel CoFund (ACF) is a UK based venture capital fund that co-invests alongside syndicates of sector-smart Angel investors, to fund and scale some of the best high-potential early-stage businesses.
Launched in 2011, ACF’s experienced team has a track record of backing some of the UK’s best success stories through its proven co-investment model, working alongside the unrivalled skills and expertise of the fund’s network of entrepreneurs and private investor partners.
Since its launch, the fund has invested over £40M, alongside more than £200M from business angels and other investors, creating a portfolio of more than 80 companies. In many cases, the fund has supported companies through multiple rounds of funding as they have scaled.

What companies do we invest in?
The fund invests right across the UK and is happy to consider investments in almost any sector. While the typical first round investment tends to be in the region of £100k - £1 million the fund actively participates in follow on rounds so the overall investment in a company can be much higher.
The critical criterion, and the attribute that all ACF investments have in common, is businesses and founding teams with significant potential to grow and create value through commercial activities.
