Agenda Apr9

Ontario’s community of innovation investment will convene at the Follow-On Investment Forum, showcasing how Angels’ passion and capital are indispensable catalysts of economic growth. Attendees will see early-stage companies on the cusp of global growth, learn about current trends and issues, and network among like-minded investors.

“By Investing in entrepreneurs, Angel investors make an invaluable contribution to job creation throughout the province. Although the government does provide some assistance, entrepreneurs still depend on the private sector to provide financing, contacts and mentorship to grow their companies. The Follow-On Investment Forum will celebrate our network’s economic impact, and provide entrepreneurs crucial access to growth capital from a province-wide audience of early-stage investors,” said Dr. Patricia Lorenz, Chair of the Network of Angel Organizations – Ontario (NAO-Ontario).

In 2007, the Government of Ontario started funding the Angel Network Program in order to address the investment gap faced by early-stage technology companies in the province. Now that these efforts have borne fruit, companies are ascending to a new level of opportunity and need. For this reason, NAO-Ontario organizes an annual event presenting follow-on investment opportunities brought forward by Angel groups and members of the Ontario Network of Entrepreneurs.
