Her new role will see her support Archangels’ executive team in carrying out due diligence, business performance analysis, legal and investor liaison for both its existing portfolio of early-stage companies and for new investment opportunities.

Archangels, founded in 1992, has more than 70 investor members and leads investments of about £10 million a year in early-stage Scottish companies. Its portfolio includes “internet of things” specialist NetThings and cyber-security firm ZoneFox.

“This role enables me to provide essential analysis for Archangels that will support their investment strategy,” said McKie.

Archangels chairman Eric Young added: “I am confident that Shaolei’s appointment will further underpin the important role that the Archangels executive team plays in our investment strategy.”
