Innovation Island Technology Association (IITA) in co-operation with the Greater Nanaimo Chamber of Commerce and MIBI have arranged for Angel Forum to come to Nanaimo for a halfday workshop, panel discussion and networking event on January 24th, 2019.
Going back to our MISTIC days, starting in 2011, IITA has been proud to have hosted several Angel Forum events including their hard-hitting Investor Ready Workshop! We hope this will be the first of many more events, resulting in closer ties between the communities on the Island and Vancouver.
This interactive workshop is an introduction to angel investing for new angel investors and entrepreneurs who are getting into raising funds and want to better understand angel expectations. The workshop will be highly interactive and a panel will share their – very often educational but also entertaining – war stories.
Angel Investing, as a way for investors to get involved with promising technology ventures, has garnered quite some attention lately. The volatility in stock markets has brought about strong interest in private investment opportunities.
Angel Forum is one of the longest serving angel networks in Canada and has successfully introduced early stage investors to promising technology ventures for more than 20 years through its investor forums and educational workshops. The Forum is a non-profit organization and companies have raised over $35 million directly through our forum and a multiple of that through our network.
Seating for the workshop and networking after is limited so we encourage you to register here: https://www.angelforum.org/events/nanaimo-angel-investing-for-entrepreneurs-and-investors
