The VANTEC network consists of angel investors and other early-stage investors who meet monthly to hear a selected number of short business presentations by nascent technology entrepreneurs. This is not an open forum style of event - it is private, informal and organized by volunteers. Between 30 and 40 angel investors typically attend each meeting. Attendance is restricted to VANTEC members and their guests by invitation only. Non-members who are accredited investors are also welcome to attend for a $50 drop-in fee.
The objective is to make initial introductions with a view to having interested parties subsequently meet in private. There are no agents, brokers, or institutional representatives.
Many companies have received funding from this network and some have already provided financial returns to angel investors [Click here for report].
VANTEC is a member of the Canadian-based National Angel Capital Organization (NACO) and the US-based Angel Capital Organization (ACA). Individual VANTEC members are automatically NACO and ACA members and can benefit from the services of these two professional angel investor organizations.
