There are more than 3,000 angel investors in Canada. These angels have invested a combined $270 million in local startups over the past four years, according to the National Angel Capital Organization.
Angels are a crucial component of the tech ecosystem, filling a gap between startups barely past the idea stage and those seeking venture capital from major firms.
This is why we support the work angels do in Canada through our Canadian Startup Awards, which recognize the nation’s most impressive angel investors every year.
Previous winners of the award include Shafin Diamond Tejani (2015), Dan Debow (2014), Greg Peet (2013), Dan Martell (2012), and Gerry Pond (2011).
Who will win this year? Well, that’s for you to decide: which angel stood out most in 2016? Nominate one now.
