Western Angels’ Demo Day

Join us in Toronto for Western Angels’ Demo Day!

We’re bringing together budding entrepreneurs and investors from across our Western University community to form new networks and partnerships to propel new businesses forward.

The event will kick-off with a special panel discussion on the venture and angel capital landscape across Canada and the United States. Our top tier panel will include:

• Claudio Rojas, BA’06, MBA ’08, JD’09, CEO of the National Angel Capital Organization (NACO), Canada’s professional association for angel investors.
• Janet Bannister, HBA ’92, Partner at Canada’s leading early-stage VC firm, Real Ventures

Following the discussion, Five exciting start-ups will showcase their businesses and explain the investment opportunity.

Each participating team will be allotted 15 minutes to publicly pitch their venture. The pitch comprises of an 8-10 minute presentation followed by 5-7 minutes of public questions from our investors. After all the teams have pitched and presented their ventures, we will break out into five rooms, where investors can choose which startups they want to network with further and make connections.
