THE CAN INVESTMENT PROCESS

scout.screen.select.present

Scouting & Applications

45- 70 companies from across Canada apply for CAN investment on a monthly basis. They are scouted from CAN competitions, like the Capital MASHUP Pitch Competition, awards and accelerator graduate lists, media stories and from close collaboration with leading accelerators across the innovation corridor and our sister Angel groups across the province. We also receive applications from  the CAN Dealroom platform, Dealum.

 

Screening

Applications are reviewed by The Screening Committee and the most promising six companies are invited to present digitally to The Selection Committee. The three best fit top companies are invited to present at a Member Investment Meeting - in person or digitally.  

 

Member Meeting Presentations

High-quality investment opportunities with strong potential for returns are presented to the membership monthly (Sep - Nov, Jan-Jun) Following the Investment Meeting presentations,  members indicate their interest in moving forward and learning more. When there's interest, a longer presentation called a Deep Dive allows for a deeper appreciation of the investment opportunity is organised.

 

Deep Dive

Startups with at least four interested investors are requested to share their data room on Dealum and invited to a Deep Dive, a 60-90 minute extension of the pitch.  Founders may invite key team members to this presentation.  At the end of the Deep Dive discussion, investors huddle to determine interest in moving forward to Due Diligence.
