Angel Forum™ - Vancouver

For Investors and Entrepreneurs

Founded in 1997, Angel Forum is one of the longest serving angel networks in Canada. We are a non-profit organization and presenting companies have raised over $35 million directly through our forum and a multiple of that through our network. At the same time we offer workshops to both entrepreneurs and investors. 

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. Our private meetings are exclusive for pre-registered investors and a select group of companies and event sponsors.

Our next and 45th Angel Forum is scheduled for April 16, 2019.

We are very proud Angel Forum ranked 1st place in Western Canada and 3rd in Canada, based on number of deals completed in 2017 (see National Angel Capital Organization report).
