Dedicated investors are imperative to the success of the Okanagan Angel Summit.

Each year, three dedicated investors from past Summits step up to volunteer their time as Directors of the OKGN Angel Investment Society to oversee and lead that year’s Summit investment and manage the investment on behalf of the entire angel investor group (typically 25-35 investors). Their roles are a key function in the success of the Summit and it wouldn’t be possible without their hard work.
