LINC Scotland

Finance for Growth since 1993


LINC Scotland is the national association for business angels in Scotland, with a membership which includes many active individual investors and most of the main angel groups or syndicates. We represent our members at government level in Edinburgh, London and Brussels and were founding members of both the European Business Angels Association (EBAN) and the World Business angels Association (WBAA).

On a day to day basis we focus on growing the range and scale of angel investment available to the country’s entrepreneurs and the Scottish business angel marketplace is now recognised as amongst the most developed in Europe.
