National Angel Capital Organization

The National Angel Capital Organization (NACO) accelerates a thriving, early-stage investing ecosystem in Canada by connecting individuals, groups, and other partners that support Angel-stage investing. NACO provides intelligence, tools and resources for its members; facilitates key connections across borders and industries; and advocates for Angel asset-class issues.

NACO incorporated as a non-profit in 2002 to promote and help create a vibrant Angel community in Canada by providing Angel investors with a secure environment to network and learn from their peers.

Since then, NACO has evolved to become the National champion of Canada’s Angel investing community, working with individuals, groups and industry partners by supporting best practices and professional development, informing policy in support of the early-stage funding ecosystem, and providing trusted intelligence on Canada’s Angel investing activity.

With more than 2,000 members across the country, we are building a strong and vibrant Angel community in Canada by making meaningful connections across borders, sectors and asset classes. Our members are a diverse group of individual investors, Angel groups and other industry partners that provide support to early-stage companies.
