Old Marlburian Angel Investment Network (OMAIN)
Marlborough College has a strong tradition of producing independently minded, creative students with an appetite for risk. Many of our former pupils have gone on to establish their own businesses and become successful entrepreneurs. To foster this entrepreneurialism the Old Marlburian Angel Investment Network (OMAIN) was launched in 2019. Its objective is to help entrepreneurial OMs access seed or development funding and advice for their early-stage businesses from OMs, current or former parents of pupils and anyone else with a Marlborough College association looking for interesting investment opportunities.
How it Works
OMAIN acts as an introduction platform between entrepreneurs and potential investors with a meaningful Marlborough College connection. Through an online portal, events and other communication mediums OMAIN makes potential investors aware of possible investment opportunities in OM linked companies. Should a company and an investor conclude an investment agreement following an introduction through the OMAIN network then the company receiving the investment makes a donation of no less than 5% of the capital it raised through the OMAIN platform to the Marlborough College Foundation.
OMAIN itself takes no fees for making introductions, does not act as an adviser, undertakes no due diligence of the parties or business opportunities involved nor does it recommend investment opportunities.
If you are an OM and are (a) the founder of, or significant shareholder of an existing business, or (b) if you have a business plan including financial forecasts for a business idea and would like to contact OMAIN, please submit your registration application details through the form below.

If you are an OM, current or former parent or person with a strong association to Marlborough College with the experience and resources to consider making investments in early stage companies, and would like to register as a potential investor on the OMAIN network please submit your registration application details through the form below.
In order to become an investor member of OMAIN you will need to read and accept the OMAIN membership terms and conditions. In addition you will need to certify yourself as a qualifying investor by reading and emailing a signed copy of the relevant self-certification documents prior to receiving investment opportunities.
