Event description


Scaling Up Angel Capital To Drive Canadian Innovation

Angel Investors, industry partners, supporters, as well as startup founders from across Canada and internationally, are invited to join us for our National NACO Summit taking place in Vancouver October 4-6, 2016. This will be our largest event to date with an anticipated 400 delegate from across the investor ecosystem in attendance. Our International guests are invited to join us at a special networking reception on Monday, October 3.

This year's conference program will be a blend of NACO Academy workshops, panels, keynote presentations, round table discussions, sector focused tours, networking activities, our Awards Gala and Startup Pitch Competition. NACO will bring together experts across a broad range of topics and geographies, while mixing in refreshing opportunities to grow networks and business opportunities.

We will kick off the official conference program with a Boat Cruise Reception taking in Vancouver's breathtaking harbour views. New this year are our industry sector tours focused on some of Vancouver's hottest emerging tech startups, as well as some activity experiences to foster both networking and learning, while taking advantage of the best that Vancouver is known for: mountains, parks and craft beer!
