Meet the 12 founders making their way towards the Summit Finale.

Our group of investors participating in the 2022 Summit fund have been busy meeting week-over-week to listen to pitches, meet with the founders, and select the Semi-finalists. This year we have companies from a variety of industries, working to improve things like; shared housing, athlete-to-coach communications, and cannabis production. These 12 founders from across western Canada have delivered their 10-minute pitches and are now continuing their climb with the hopes of making it to the Finale on March 16.


Let’s meet the Semi-finalists:

“These entrepreneurs are solid in their understanding of what outcome they want to achieve and each company has its own solution that is connecting users and communities in unique and better ways.”

Carollynn Schafer

Fund Manager, OKGN Angel Society

“Each entrepreneur’s innovative approach to solving real problems is inspiring. Their passion is shining through and that is a big part of why they’ve made it this far.”

If you are just learning about our OKGN Angel Summit, it is a 10-week program where accredited investors and startup founders are introduced to the world of angel investing through a guided, hands-on process with multiple pitch events and training activities. This process provides participating companies with a chance to learn how businesses are vetted, complete due diligence, and make improvements to their pitch. At the end of the program, during a live public pitch event on March 16th, the investors will decide which company receives the $150K investment from the fund.


Who will take home the big investment? Find out at the 2022 OKGN Angel Summit Finale on March 16! You can register for the Finale now on Eventbrite.
