Angel investors ready to roll

Movers and shakers in the tech and business industry converged on BNA Brewing Co. & Eatery Thursday night for the launch of Accelerate Okanagan’s inaugural OKGN Angel Summit.

When it's finished, one local startup company is going to win at least $100,000 to help get its business off the ground. The other goal of the summit is to teach local investors how to properly invest their money in burgeoning companies.

“The goal of the summit is to raise awareness about angel investing and what are the benefits and opportunities, and then to educate accredited investors,” Accelerate Okanagan programs manager Thuy Tran said.

“It’s investors learning to do angel investing by angel investing. We’ve had a great response of support from the community.”
