The 32nd Angel Forum took place earlier this week in Vancouver and over 100 entrepreneurs, investors and sponsors were in attendance.
The day-long event wrapped up with the Angel Forum crowning the 2012 BC Angel Investor of the Year as well as the Investor Choice Award winners.
In 2009 legendary angel investor Mike Volker was awarded the inaugural BC Angel Investor of the Year award and 2010 saw the award go angel investor Paul Geyer.
Last year the Angel Forum started recognizing the new wave of active angels in the province with Boris Wertz of Version One Ventures singled out.
This year they continued the theme and awarded Initio Group's Mike Edwards with the 2012 title.
The Investor Choice Awards—aptly named as they were voted on by the investors that took in the company presentations—went to the following:
- Best Presentation: Vancouver's Industrious
- Best Pre-Revenue Company: Vancouver's Industrious
- Best Revenue Company: Vancouver's Ayogo
- Most Promising Company to go Public: SignalChem
Congratulations to all the winners and to Bob Chaworth-Musters on another great forum.
