1st Network of Health Business Angels in Europe
Angels Santé is Europe’s largest network of business angels specialized in health. Its role is to connect investors and entrepreneurs from the healthcare world to foster the creation and launch of innovative and ambitious business projects.
Angels Santé supports a variety of worthwhile projects thanks to the thorough and collaborative screening of each application. Consequently, the selected growing start-ups profit from the tremendous leverage brought about by the value-added expertise of our investors, the training courses and collective financial contribution from which each project can benefit from.
Business angels are individuals who invest some of their personal assets in the capital of an innovative company with strong potential and who, in addition, provide their skills, insights, network, time and support to the invested companies.
Angels Santé is a network of nearly 100 members whose expertise and skills ensure the success of our mission

The committee reviews some 150 projects a year and selects 4 a month for our Pitch & Chats Sessions
Late 2018, Angels Santé launches its Startup Club. This club, co-led by Stéphane Loze and Thierry Sarda, boosts the development of our invested startups by connecting them to Angels Santé’s ecosystem and partners: consultancy and industrial firms, healthcare facilities, Series A & B investors in France and abroad thanks to the EIT Health Investor Network.
Angels Santé is made up of some 100 investors. They meet, once a month, during the “Pitch & Chat” sessions to hear the presentation of our pre-selected projects and to further discuss with the founders on a one-to-one basis. The interested investors will proceed with the due diligence of the selected projects. An investor leader will then be designated.
Angels Santé is committed to intelligent healthcare solution
Through the projects that it accompanies, Angels Santé raises awareness of unmet medical needs. It strives to improve healthcare by promoting the emergence of innovative solutions. The projects are therefore selected with care with the objective of having a real health added-value.
It also stimulates the economic development of the health sector through significant investments in projects with strong potential, consequently promoting the creation of new jobs, the emergence of more affordable products, the immediate access to scientific data, etc.
Each start-up is therefore selected according to a precise and detailed business plan, reviewed and approved with care.
