Tips to succeed

As founders move through the CAN selection process, they will receive emails via the Dealum platform with tips to succeed moving forward.  

 

If you have a champion investor from CAN, another angel group, or the ecosystem, work with them to develop your social capital and expand your investor network via warm introductions.

Be sure to mention your champion when applying for funding.  

Don't be shy to ask the ED and your investors for referrals to other groups and VCs to speed up your round.

 

 

CAN provides opportunities to engage within our network outside of formal member meetings.

 

In January each year CAN conducts a seven week investment ready micro masterclass series led by our partners and members.  This series, CANLABS, offers an opportunity to meet experts and investors from the CAN network, as well as, tips to avoid deal crushing red flags and missteps.

Each May CAN hosts a one day mini-festival called Capital MASHUP. This is a great way to meet CAN members and partners in a fun and relaxed environment.

 

You can also meet CAN investors and Selection Committee members  at Invest Ottawa's Accelerate OTT, StartupFest Montreal, Elevate Festival Toronto, and SaaS North Ottawa.
