Replay of Part 4 the NACO Roundtable on Canadian Angel Activity
In relation to how do we keep investment moving and in Atlantic Canada… the most crucial things we need to be looking at are… matching funds from government… and investor tax credit –Stefanie Corbett, Director of Operations at Island Capital Partners
We have had successful applications from companies who have retooled their manufacturing to produce face masks, hospital gowns, hand sanitizers, etc. Four of these deals closed just last week –Mary Long-Irwin, Executive Director at Northern Ontario Angels
The angel ecosystem may be the glue that connects the policy and government with those startups on the front line that are the future of Canada. We’ve got to keep them shining bright –Randall Howard, Prominent Angel Investor and Board Member at GTAN.
To the entrepreneurs on this call, the angel community is here to support you. We are in constant contact and communication with all those stakeholders that are ready and willing to support your companies. We are moving as quickly as we can to collaborate with policymakers to keep funds flowing into your companies, so that you can keep your employees employed, and so that you can keep building your great companies.
When we look at past economic crises, new global companies emerged. And in the aftermath, and we are committed to helping that next wave of global companies emerge from Canada.
