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. 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.

We have replicated this formula in September 2019 in Kelowna in collaboration with Accelerate Okanagan with Vancouver super angel Ralph Turfus and from Toronto Eva Lau as keynotes. A summary of the event is here. We will also be in Kelowna again in September 2020!

Welcome to Nimbus Synergies

Nimbus has joined us as one of our key annual key sponsors.

Nimbus Synergies leads early-stage financings in innovative and complementary health technology companies in British Columbia. By bringing these companies together to share resources, industry specific knowledge, and relationships, Nimbus is accelerating their growth and increasing their likelihood of success. By investing Discovery Parks’ assets in startups focused on the intersection between life sciences and technology, Nimbus aims to improve health through BC-led innovation

Welcome to Virtual CFO

We are also very pleased to welcome Virtual CFO - Alexandra Dawes - as one of our annual key sponsors. 

Virtual CFO Solutions works with startup companies by offering a virtual finance team with bookkeeping, operational management, and CFO services. Running a startup usually means that having a full-time CFO is not affordable or required at that point. Virtual CFO Solutions can offer a part-time CFO or Controller to cover all finance and operational needs so that businesses can focus on getting to that next level of growth. The team at Virtual CFO Solutions will help manage cash flow, keep investors happy, and improve ongoing business systems to help startup companies scale up. 

 

Why Angel Forum ?

"The Angel Forum is the best Angel group in Vancouver and they are playing a critical role in funding early-stage tech based companies in BC” - Tamer Mohamed, CEO, Aspect Biosystems

 

“ We had a great experience with Angel Forum and we presented at both their Victoria and Vancouver events in 2019. It gave us access to not only BC-based investors, but also Ontario angels who ended up committing to a significant portion of our first external financing " - Phil Mowatt, CEO, Interpodia

 

“The Angel Forum is a must for any BC-based entrepreneur. I received cheques from investors 2 out of the 3 different times I presented two companies” - Serge Salager, CEO VisualPing and RetargetLinks

 

I was really impressed with the quality of the companies presenting at the Angel Forum, as well as how well it was run. I ended up investing in one of the companies and never would have found them without the Angel Forum” - Doug T, investor

 

"Thanks for the valuable feedback on our company information as I can already see areas where we can improve our image to investors through your recommendations. This process has been hugely valuable in preparing us for investors”  - Mike Leslie, CTO, EyeSpy Innovations
