Angel Forum™ - Vancouver

For Investors and Entrepreneurs

Founded in 1997, Angel Forum is one of the longest serving angel networks in Canada and since September 2018 under new management. We are a non-profit organization and connect promising start-ups with accredited angel capital. At the same time we offer workshops to both entrepreneurs and investors. We provide a community for new or seasoned investors with our wealth of resources, knowledge, and opportunities. 

We have access to and work closely with angels from all over British Columbia and the USA and we collaborate with local organizations and are part of Canada's National Angel Capital Organization and US's Angel Capital Association. Membership of Angel Forum is for accredited investors only and private meetings are exclusive for pre-registered investors and a select group of companies and event sponsors.
