The Angel Forum

The Angel Forum

Founded in 1997, the Angel Forum - Vancouver semi-annually introduces emerging companies to private equity investors. As one of the oldest & largest angel groups in Canada with 90+ investors, its primary objective is to facilitate investment in emerging companies. Presenting companies have raised over $24 million directly through the Forum. Since 1998, Investor Ready workshops for entrepreneurs and now Investor workshops are offered.

The Angel Forum and workshops are held each fall and spring

Usually 30+ pre-screened technology, service and industrial companies (see list) currently seeking equity funding of up to $1.5 million formally present their investment opportunities and exhibit their products to 75+ pre-screened investors in one day. The Forum is a private meeting exclusive only to pre-registered companies and registered investors.
