10th Annual National Angel Summit hits Montreal

by Rob Lewis | Business

The 10th Annual National Angel Summit is taking place in Montreal from October 6th to 8th and this year's theme is 'creativity'.

More than ever, Angels and entrepreneurs need to draw upon their creativity to succeed in a constantly changing world. Investors and businesspeople have been left with profound questions after the recent financial crisis. With less capital available to startups, Angel-funded companies have had to revise their fundraising strategies as well as their plans for exits. As the early-stage financing environment continues to evolve rapidly, competition has also become increasingly global, forcing us to redouble our efforts to succeed in the long term.

Participation in this year’s Summit is a unique opportunity to meet with Canada's Angel finance community. Topics of discussion that are on the agenda include bringing new products to market, new business models, Angel war stories, as well as Angel fundraising strategies and tactics.

Sessions include:

  • The Financial Ecosystem as Viewed by Funds of Funds with Todd Tessier and moderated by Flow Ventures'Raymond Luk
  • Angel War Stories and Early Exits - The best & worst of the past year with Andy Nulman of Airborne Entertainment Story an Chris Arsenault of iNovia Capital
  • New Incubator Models with Duncan Hill of Mantella Venture Partners and Danny Robinson of Bootup Labs

In addition, five early-stage Angel-backed companies will be selected to pitch for additional growth capital at the 2010 National Angel Summit.  To give as many companies as possible the opportunity to apply, organizers have extended their Call for Companies to September 20th, 2010.
