Rod Beer, Strategic Relations Director UK Business Angels Association

Roderick was recently appointed as the Strategic Relations Director for the UK Business Angel Association. The Association’s focus is on growing and supporting the early stage investment ecosystem

through a nationwide programme of education and collaboration. It does this through its 213 syndicate, and crowd funding members and an 18,000 strong investor reach.

Before that, Roderick’s career started running the operations for Beer & Partners, whilst it grew to be the largest, regulated private investment network in the UK, securing over £80m for more than 500 businesses. After setting up an entrepreneurial division within a crowdfunding network he then went on to join the team at Ruffena Capital as their COO at the very beginning of 2014.
