Angel investing plays a critical role in the life cycle of early stage technology companies. In Ottawa, that role is largely filled by an organization called the Capital Angel Network.
One of the top five most active angel groups in Canada, the Capital Angel Network was founded in 2009 and now has more than 40 members. Since inception, the Capital Angel Network has invested more than $65 million in local startups.
In this episode of Techopia Live, Ottawa Business Journal publisher Michael Curran speaks with two of the Capital Angel Network leaders, Suzanne Grant and Jennifer Francis. Together, they discuss the opportunity created by a down investment market, the types of companies that should consider angel investing, and how the group is pushing for more diversity in its investments.
