AngelNews, the leading online news service for investors and entrepreneurs, is delighted to announce its partnership with Venture Hothouse, the comprehensive start-up and early stage investment portal.

Venture Hothouse has been dubbed ‘the future standard for supporting entrepreneurs and start-ups in becoming investor ready.’ The website also offers directories, a resource library with useful documents, a glossary, blog, news and industry articles.

The partnership will see Venture Hothouse contribute editorial to the monthly AngelNewsletter from September 2010. The website will also be accessible from the AngelNews homepage.

In turn, AngelNews will be providing a regular industry news feed to the Venture Hothouse website, where readers can utilise the valuable tools and services on offer by becoming a Venture Hothouse member.

Entrepreneurs looking for funding or expert advice with their business plans can sign up to use the Venture Hothouse benefits for merely £120+VAT for 6 months or £180+VAT a year.

There is also a ‘non-entrepreneur’ membership for investors, advisors, mentors, agencies or service providers, costing £200+VAT for 6 months or £300+VAT a year.

The benefits of the membership include a priority listing in the ‘Directory’ with a textbox describing your investment strategy (for Investors), business service offering, initiatives and expertise, including a hyperlink to transfer interested potential clients and companies directly to your website etc…

Sarah Abrahams, Account Manager at AngelNews said: “We are delighted to be working with Venture Hothouse on this extensive partnership. Having been involved in the beta test of the website earlier this year, it became very clear that the tools are revolutionary to the investment market and will be highly beneficial to investment readiness and the early stages of the investment process.

“We constantly seek to expand our services to offer the best advice to entrepreneurs and encourage the efficiency of the investment market in general. Now members of our community can take advantage of the unique tools created by Venture Hothouse, to really kick-start their fundraising.

“If you are starting a business, want genuine advice on writing a business plan, or are ready to fundraise, you definitely need to sign up to this service.”

Paul Clarke, co-founder of Venture Hothouse said: “In our view, AngelNews delivers an unrivalled and outstanding service into the investor and entrepreneur arena. Their talented team is right at the heart of what is absolutely current in the investment and early stage business scene".

“We had no hesitation in inviting the AngelNews team to play a part in our Beta testing programme. Their feedback was invaluable as we completed our development during the Spring of this year".

“We are excited therefore to partner with such an organisation who share our view that the standards of support for entrepreneurs, start-ups and early stage business must improve if the Country is to recover from the current tough economic climate. We believe our offering — including our online tools — will at least help deliver a part of this necessary improvement".

“The added value that AngelNews brings to Venture Hothouse cannot be underestimated. Our website audience will benefit greatly from contributions and features sourced from AngelNews and we will be actively encouraging our subscribers and visitors to sign up to their excellent news and publications services.”
