OKGN Angel Summit 2020 Application Deadline
December 1, 2019
The OKGN Angel Summit is a 10-week program that trains new angel investors using a guided process. This provides participants with a chance to actively learn how to vet companies, provide feedback, and perform due diligence in helping to support early-stage companies. Participating companies will learn about the capital raising process and how to effectively build relationships with prospective investors. At the end of the 10 weeks, the 6 finalists pitch to an audience of community members. During this finale, a winner will be chosen to receive a minimum investment of $100,000.
Accredited investors who are both curious and passionate to learn about angel investing would benefit the most from applying for the OKGN Angel Summit. The goal is not to find the next unicorn; instead, we want to focus on the process of how to become a structured angel investor. Through this process, we can increase the numbers of angel investors within our community and grow the sophistication of angels as deal leads.
OKGN Angel Summit is ideal for early-stage companies where an investment of $100 – $200k will make an impact in moving their business forward. Entrepreneurs that may apply should be based within a day’s drive of Kelowna, operate in any industry, and have the potential for a 10x return on investment in 5 years. This is a great program to improve your company, get valuable feedback, build relationships with investors and, ultimately, increase your chance of building a successful business.
