Investing for Success: Your Return on Innovation

NACO’s World Angel Investment Summit attracted investors, partners and industry leaders from around the world and was the flagship event for the Canadian Angel Investor community. This year, the team at NACO partnered with the Inventure$ Conference to host three days of premium content in Calgary, Alberta. From June 5th to the 7th, attendees experienced great talks and networking opportunities with views of the rugged peaks of the Canadian Rockies. Special thanks to our Elite Sponsor, Alberta Innovates.
