Member Sector: Associations
To introduce early stage investors and mentors to promising technology(ie. all advanced technology fields) ventures mainly in British Columbia.
This network consists of VANTEC members, 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 and informal. Between 30 and 40 angels typically attend each meeting. Attendance is restricted primarily to bona fide angel investors (VANTEC members and their guests). Attendance is 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. 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.
