Yet, this is an asset class that is foreign to even many seasoned investors and family offices.” Advertisement 3 Article content Speakers include some of Canada’s successful angels, many of whom began their own journeys as founders. There will also be prominent guest speakers attending from the UK. “Furthering the conversation and action around early-stage investing is important to not only the growth that Alberta needs in its startup ecosystem but that Canada needs at this time to compete globally,” says Eric Gordon , CEO for Entuitive Compliance (Toronto), speaker at Vantage. Gordon is now a successful investor who manages his family office. He began his career as a serial entrepreneur developing intuitive software companies from cradle to exit. Early-stage dollars not part of the traditional VC model While headlines indicate massive growth in our startup sector and hundreds of millions invested into Alberta’s tech sector via VC dollars over the past few years, the majority of those dollars are segmented to mega-deals and a handful of companies. It is the smaller deals, startups, and pre-seed asset class of investors who are fueling the next generation of companies, founders and deal flow. Article content Article content “We’re on a mission to unlock growth potential for the next generation of Alberta’s technology founders and to give local investors access to the venture asset class,” says LaPointe , former President and co-founder of Calgary-based ATTAbotics . LaPointe led the robotics company through its first equity and grant funding and through significant investment and growth. As a technology entrepreneur, LaPointe is well aware of the hurdles pre-revenue and early-stage companies in Alberta face when going to raise capital. Metiquity is now lead investor in six portfolio companies, and building on Fund I ($10 million). “Despite headlines about record venture investment, these founders are regularly overlooked and neglected. They can’t access the capital they need to grow when they need it the most. We believe now is the best time to invest locally in our burgeoning ecosystem to truly unlock this potential and generate exceptional returns for investors,” LaPointe adds.

The Firehood has invested upwards of $1 million to women technology founders in the past six months alone and are growing a network of women angels that is over 50 across Canada and increasing monthly. “The face of investment, and those who will become the next Limited Partners, heads of family offices, and Venture Capitalists, are changing. As are the products and innovations that founders are developing and the businesses they are scaling. North America is a more diverse market and thus, the need for diversity in our investment sector is not just the so-called right thing to do, it’s frankly just good investment thesis,” Graham says, adding that Alberta has become an increasingly important hub for herself and other firms to explore over the past three years as the startup sector gains increasing momentum.
