Investing for Success: Your Return on Innovation

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

The last World Angel Investment Summit was held in Toronto, in partnership with Elevate Tech Fest. It was three days of great Keynotes, impressive panels, and memorable networking events. Consequently, the 2018 World Angel Investment Summit was the culmination of years’ worth of NACO’s efforts to build Angel communities across the country, and catalyzed a more dynamic early-stage capital ecosystem – and we’re excited to build on that in Calgary this year.
