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.

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.
