FUNDING FOUNDERS
WHERE FOUNDERS & FUNDERS UNITE

TO EXPLORE NON-DILUTIVE FUNDING FOR ATLANTIC CANADIAN COMPANIES

SUPER EARLY BIRD ENDS AUG 15, 2019

Invest Atlantic and the National Angel Capital Organization have teamed up to offer very-early stage startups to mid-stage founders the opportunity to hear from and meet Canada’s non-dilutive and dilutive funders. You’ll discover new options to leverage non-dilutive funding while continuing to work with angel, VC investors and other equity-based funders.

This year Invest Atlantic celebrates its 10th anniversary by introducing Funding Founders. After touring the four Atlantic provinces making it a true pan Atlantic event we are pleased to be back in Halifax this year. Over 2,000 startups, investors, service providers, mentors, researchers, and entrepreneurially minded students have attended with over 560 companies funded.

Now it’s time to build on that with a new wave of funding using a balanced approach to dilutive and non-dilutive financing. In collaboration, they can achieve impactful outcomes for founders, shareholders & funders alike.
