Event Details

We offer 6 slots for promising companies to present to our mostly investor audience. Each presentation will be 10 minutes followed by 10 minutes of Q&A. We will send your 2 page executive summary in advance of the summit day to all registrants and will send them a link to your full pitch deck the day after and facilitate follow-up with those investors who have expressed interest in learning more about your company.

We will help you prepare for your virtual pitch if you wish. 

Based on our experience with our weekly virtual meetings, presentation slots fill up quick, and we usually receive way more applications than we have spots.

The companies selected to present at this summit will vie for several bragging worthy Investor Choice awards generously provided by our sponsors. The people attending the summit will get to vote who gets the award for:

  • The company with the best revenue potential
  • The most innovative company
  • The company most likely to go public
  • The strongest team
  • The best presentation
  • And last but not least: the company invited to present at our Whistler Summit

So, if you are interested in presenting:

Register through the link above and pay the $75 fee

  • Send your 2 page executive summary - following this format - and pitch deck to irene@angelforum.org
  • We will notify if you have been selected by September 9th. The fee you have paid does include the presentation but also a mentor session if you are interested and of course attendance of the full summit including the workshop.
  • If you have not been selected to present, let us know if you want to be considered and use the fee towards a mentor session and/or towards attending the summit. If  you are not interested in either, we will be happy to refund the full fee. 

Our keynotes and some of our members have offered to make themselves available for 30mins virtual 1on1 sessions for entrepreneurs on September 18th. If you are interested in getting 1on1 advice from someone with tons of experience as either an entrepreneurs and/or investor, sign up here.

We have 12 sessions available, and full is full....

You do not need to be raising capital to benefit from these session.

Please note that if you have been selected to present, a mentor session is included in your fee already so no need to sign up separately.

Payment of the mentor session fee entitles you to attend the full summit including the workshop on the 17th and summit day on the 18th.

 

Angel Forum in the Okanagan - A Virtual Summit

Early Stage Investing through the Crisis

Presented by Angel Forum and Accelerate Okanagan

For both investors and entrepreneurs

Venue: Online

Agenda will be regularly updated. Yes, the topic is serious, but who says we cannot have fun in the process? Don't expect a highly stylized, over produced event (there are enough of those already and to be frank: that is not what are good at). We like to think we are good at connecting people and building networks and therefore we look forward to a highly interactive event, where everyone participates! No question is a dumb question, no comment is a silly comment, just throw in your 2 cents worth and see where it gets us. 

And yes, we really miss seeing you in person but this might work for now ... 

Remember the great welcome wine event we had at the Indigenous World Winery last year? We have looked into have an online tasting event but no matter how good, it never comes close to actually being at their great winery, enjoying their wines and beautiful food.

HOWEVER, we can try something right? With help from the Indigenous World Winery, we will award the 1st, 10th, 20th, 40th, 80th and 160th person who registers with a gift package of 2 bottles of their award winning wines directly shipped from their winery to yours (provided you don't live in Ontario or outside Canada .. those silly laws..). So get your registrations in!

Summit Agenda:

2.00pm        Half Day Workshop (Online): Angel Investing from First Cheque to Exit

This interactive half day workshop is an introduction to angel investing, geared towards both entrepreneurs and investors. Expect to be introduced to all that you can expect to cross your path as an angel investor or founder looking for angel funding. Legal terms, term sheets, valuation illustrated with love stories, war stories and horror stories. You will not be an expert once you have completed this workshop (we have other in-depth workshops on offer that will get you closer .. but strongly recommend you don't fire your lawyer and accountant!) but at least you will know what they are talking about!
