- The Sophia Business Angels is a select group of international serial entrepreneurs and senior managers coming together once a month in the European high-tech capital of Sophia Antipolis, France. Today, the group numbers 50 + strong, hails from 15 countries stretching from South America to North America to the Middle East and to Europe, and has a proven serious interest to invest early in local, national, and international start-up projects which bring a significant return on investment. Given the group's combined expertise in finance, ICT, Bio, and Energy, the SBA Members have been able to work as a club to find, fashion, and fund investments for their members throughout the world. This success has led to the SBA being one of the first recipients of a French national grant for Business Angels. It has also led to the SBA members founding 2 investment vehicles, Innovation Europe and Croissance Europe, together with Meeschaert Gestion PrivÃ©e to lead private investing throughout Europe. As a result, the SBA was chosen to host the EASY Cross-Border Investment Forum 20/21 November during the French Presidency of the European Union as well as the parallel event France Angels âSemaine des Business Angelsâ day on 21 November 2008. The events were featured projects from around Europe and France in the MedTech, CleanTech, Hi-Tech, and Space Sectors.
