How it works
The OKGN Angel Summit is an elevated pitch program that is designed for entrepreneurs and investors from all walks of life. Powered by Accelerate Okanagan, this 10-week program is not just about choosing a who will receive the big investment, it’s about training entrepreneurs and investors in the capital-raising process, making it easier to invest and get investment.
Through a guided process, participating companies will learn about the capital raising process and how to effectively build relationships with prospective investors.
Investors will receive training around the investment and due-diligence process, providing new investors with a chance to actively learn how to vet companies, provide feedback, and help to support early-stage companies.
At the end of the program, 6 finalists will pitch to an audience of community members. During this finale, the investors will decide which company receives an investment of up to $250,000.
The Grande Finale
The OKGN Angel Summit Finale is the culmination of a 10-week program where startup entrepreneurs and accredited investors are trained in the capital-raising process. On March 16th, six remaining companies will make their final pitch for an investment of up to $250K.
In addition to a giant cheque, the Summit Finale is all about celebrating community and strengthening connections in Western Canada’s startup ecosystem. After two years, we are looking forward to hosting the Summit Finale in person at the Kelowna Innovation Centre for an evening of pitches, keynote addresses and networking.
