OKGN Angel Summit Finale 2022

16 March 2022 @ 4:30 am - 7:30 pm

Get ready. Get excited. It’s time to secure your spot for the Summit finale!

The OKGN Angel Summit Finale is the culmination of a 10-week program where accredited investors and startup entrepreneurs are trained in the capital-raising process. On March 16th, six remaining companies will make their final pitch for the $150K investment fund.

First Nations leader, Canadian businessman, and Author, Chief Clarence Louie, will be taking to the virtual stage to deliver a keynote address. He has been the Chief of the Osoyoos Indian Band for an impressive ten terms and has received numerous recognitions and accolades, including; being a recipient of the Order of Canada and being inducted into the BC Business Hall of Fame and Canadian Business Hall of Fame. During his talk, Chief Louie will share his insights from his progressive work with the Osoyoos Indian Band and inspire us on how we can create stronger communities through entrepreneurship and economic development.

After the pitches, while the investors deliberate on a winner, Renée Warren and Dan Martell will join for a fireside chat. This husband and wife duo are both successful, award-winning entrepreneurs and experienced investors. Renée coaches female entrepreneurs through her business, We Wild Women and Dan helps SAAS founders scale through his business the SAAS Academy.

In addition to a giant cheque, the Summit Finale is really all about celebrating community and strengthening connections in Western Canada’s startup ecosystem. The Summit Finale will be hosted on Remo, a virtual networking platform that allows for attendees to move around the venue, gather with friends in small groups, and chat one-on-one with other guests.
