The Future of Angel investing

Posted by Liam Britten

While traditional venture capital investors are going bankrupt and keeping a low profile in today’s troubled economy, bold “angel” investors are stepping in to invest and guide startup companies to higher success. How can this be?

Angel investors, who invest their own personal wealth into new companies they expect to give high returns, are increasingly banding together in groups called “super angels” to invest more flexibly and with power comparable to old-school venture capitalists. But is this trend the way of the future?

The Vancouver Enterprise Forum will host a forum September 21st at the Vancity Theatre to answer many questions about super angels. Paul Kedrosky, investor, entrepreneur, writer and analyst for CNBC television, will lead the discussion with a panel of experienced angels including local investors Boris Wertz and Basil Peters, and Seattle-based Geoff Entress.

Pre-registration tickets are $45, door registration tickets are $50, and one-year memberships in the Vancouver Enterprise Forum are $200, which includes admission to eight events per year hosted by the Forum.

More information is available online.
