Applications being accepted for sixth annual Okanagan Angel Summit

Summit applications open

Applications are now being accepted for the sixth annual Okanagan Angel Summit.

The eight-week pitch program guides Okanagan-based investors and Western Canadian startups through the capital-raising process. It’s an opportunity for both new businesses to receive an investment of up to $200,000 and for investors to learn all about the world of angel investing.

The summit will take place from April 2 to May 23, when the grand finale will be held at Kelowna’s Innovation Centre.

Startups can get the early-bird application fee of $75 before until March 8, with an additional $200 required if their company makes it to the final 24. Applications are open now and will close March 24.

The 24 finalists will be cut to 12 after three-minute pitches, a networking event and due diligence training. The last dozen will deliver 10-minute pitches, and then the six finalists will be chosen.

The finalists will deliver five-minute pitches at the grand finale in front of a live audience at Innovation Centre, and the investors will take an hour or so to pick the winner.
