Investment Process

Code of Conduct

Capital Angel Network (CAN) is the largest early-stage investor group in the National Capital Region and one of Canada’s most active angel groups.

Membership is made up of more than 60 Angel Investors, VCs, Family Offices, fund managers and corporate members. 35% of CAN members include a woman.

Over the past three years, CAN members invested $25M into Pre-seed, SEED and Series A startup rounds across Canada and primarily along the Montreal-Waterloo investment corridor.  

From 2021 to 2023,  an average of 45 % of first time direct investments were placed with women founded and co-founded startups.

CAN members deliver more than $1M value annually in volunteer mentorship via CAN programs, MASHUP and CANLABS, and via the founder community, portfolio relations, investor readiness and partner programs.

Since inception in 2009, CAN Members invested $82M into more than 200 companies. A majority of direct investments are made into Gatineau, Ottawa and Kanata area startups. This funding has led to half a billion dollars in additional investment through grants, syndication with other angel groups and venture capital funds.
