After filing the initial application (below), applicants will have to submit an executive summary of their plan (2 pages), along with pro-forma financials
(balance sheet, income statement, and forward cash flow). The best business plans will be chosen as selectees. Each
of the selectees (five in total) will be highlighted at the annual conference and given the opportunity to present at
AGBC annual conference. At the end of the conference the winners will be ranked and chosen. Winners will be
presented with awards and cash prizes, and follow up counseling from a newly established AGBC Angel Advisory
Board, and the opportunity to travel to the United States within 12 months.
The selectees will be asked to upload due diligence documents into a private portal on the Business Council Website
where investors, subject to NDAs, can assess their companies and consider further investment. Selectees will, with
their approval, have their business promoted in the US with angel networks in several States and will have a chance
to come to the US the following year, conditional of meeting certain benchmarks, to meet with advisors, potential
investors, and incubators and accelerators.
