About VANTEC Angel Network

Mission and Culture

 

Our Mission

To help grow the angel investing community and angel investments made in BC, and to support angel investors in making more and better investments. 

 

Who We Are

We are a group of angel investors who want to support promising BC-based entrepreneurs in technology ventures with angel investment, advice and connections.

 

What We Do

Since 1999 we have been hosting monthly angel investment meetings where 8-12 early stage companies present their business and investment opportunity to an audience of angel investors. We are often the first investor community where startups pitch. We offer entrepreneurs a 90 second preview pitch and the chance to give a full presentation based on investor interest. We introduce all investment opportunity pitches to our network of angel investors across BC in our free monthly angel investing newsletter.

 

Our Goals

  • Provide angel investors with a strong deal flow of vetted early stage seed investment opportunities.
  • Provide angel investors with a community to network, collaborate, learn and share knowledge.
  • Provide entrepreneurs with an opportunity to pitch and present their investment opportunity to angel investors, and build relationships with angel investors.
