Unbox The Dress, Boddle Learning, Health Hero and Ecolution have been the four companies pitching to the business angel Minority association’s angel investors network in baMa’s first pich event for this year.
These four startups were selected following baMa’s dealflow pre-selection process.

Then baMa sourcing team met 25 companies to learn about the team and leadership of these companies, the opportunity that they represent, their fit to market and some round details. 6 companies made it to the next round, and were reviewed by our Advisory Board team. Lastly, 4 companies were presented to our network on pitch Day.
