Company background:

An angel syndicate and business incubator, Gabriel Investments invests in pre-start and start-up businesses.

The concept behind Gabriel is to take young businesses with an idea, business model or product in its early stages and inject funds to help take it to market.

Typically investing in businesses that demonstrate growth potential, ambition and scalability – Gabriel also offers ancillary services. These include physical space, business planning, financial projections, marketing strategy, administrative and secretarial support.

By the end of the six to nine month incubation process, the business will be ready for market.
