Type of Program:
Founded in 2009, the Capital Angel Network (CAN) has been investing in startups in the National Capital Region for almost a decade.
CAN actively engages with the Ottawa startup ecosystem by integrating directly with local incubators and accelerators. We also host a bi-annual Mashup to showcase the best of what our community has to offer.
From there, companies apply to pitch on a monthly basis. Once screened, they are presented to the membership for investment.
This process ensures that only high-quality investment opportunities with strong potential for returns are presented to our membership.
Comments on Funding:
Most companies that approach CAN are raising between $500K & $1M.
When It Ends:
Accepting new applications for 2022
First Monday of the Month
CAN has invested in a diverse portfolio of companies ranging from a food waste recycler to a spectrum analyzer to a platform for bus rentals. However, given the background of CAN’s 50+ members their portfolio primarily consists of the following verticals:
create/have a company profile in Dealulm;
apply using their Dealulm profile;
make a pitch. All applicants will also automatically be entered for the Pitch Award.
After application submission, CAN prescreens the applications and up to 6 candidates are invited to the screening meeting where 2 or 3 will be chosen to present at the member meeting.
