We're honoured to announce that doppel has won Best Female-Led Angel Investment at this year’s UKBAA Angel Investment Awards. The company was recognised alongside Ros Singleton, doppel’s lead investor from the pro-women and award-winning angel network Angel Academe.
The award, which doppel was jointly awarded alongside World Wide Generation, represents a significant achievement as the company begins to scale.
Now in its 14th year, the annual UKBAA Angel Investment Awards celebrate high growth and success in the angel and early-stage investment market – recognising the fastest growing brands and acknowledging the founders, angels, crowd funders and early-stage venture capital investors behind them.
doppel’s CEO Dr Fotini Markopoulou said:
“It’s fantastic to see the UK Business Angels Association dedicate an award to female-led investment. We are delighted to be recognised in such a prestigious category. We look forward to growing the business with support of both of our angel groups.”
Ros Singleton, lead investor from Angel Academe, added:
“I'm thrilled to be recognised for the Angel Academe investment in doppel. This is recognition for the whole team and collaborative approach we take to all our investments. Working closely with Cambridge Angels' lead, Paul Anson, I have learnt a lot and am confident the doppel team will go from strength to strength, thanks to their brilliant tech which helps people cope with life’s stresses naturally and within moments.”
Paul Anson, lead investor from Cambridge Angels, also added:
“We have great expectations for our investment in doppel. The drive and passion of the team and their ethical approach was key to creating an aligned and substantial syndicate and that same attitude will serve the founders well in scaling the business.”
