Spark Angel Network

Spark Angel Network is a group of individual investors whose aim is to build economic growth and sustainability within Durham and Northumberland. As successful individuals, the members have come together to provide private equity investment to early-stage technology and innovative businesses.

Primarily, focusing on businesses in the Durham-Northumberland area, the Spark Angel Investment Network enables high net worth individuals to allocate a small proportion of their investable assets into a diversified (self-selected) portfolio of early-stage ventures. Becoming a 'member' will be of interest to those looking to allocate $25k+ per year to a mix of such private-equity opportunities. Please visit for more information.
