Angel First Look Investor Meeting – Applications Due
To fuel business growth and success, the most critical aspect of all is funding – raising money is a major milestone for any startup. The 2019 Angel First Look Investor Meeting connects high-potential startups to investment sources and strategic partners.
Presented by RIC Centre, Angel One and City of Brampton, this signature event provides entrepreneurs with the opportunity to pitch to experienced investors, connect with corporate partners and network with the local innovation community.
As a valued partner, we’re thrilled to extend an invitation to your organization to attend and share this unique opportunity with your highest-potential clients. This year brings on a couple new changes to the event format:
- High potential startups can now “self-nominate” and an approval committee will finalize the exhibiting companies
- Strategic corporate organizations will be invited to tour the tradeshow – one of the fastest ways for startups to go to market is through corporate partnerships (leveraging their established sales channels, proprietary assets and market knowledge)
This invite-only event is, as always, free for your regional innovation centre to participate in. We look forward to working with you on this great event to profile companies to the Angel community!
