Founders & Funders
October 21, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm MDTFree
Join Startup Edmonton, TEC Edmonton, BDC and Alberta Enterprise Corporation as they host Founders & Funders virtually on Remo during the 7th annual Edmonton Startup Week!
Bringing together active investors and tech founders at all stages, Founders & Funders is a chance to connect with a growing community, create connections, and foster relationships before the ask for support is on the table. Often, founders flounder when seeking capital because they put off developing relationships with potential investors thinking that their pitch or product isn’t perfect. Investors, keen to work with the local tech community, are sometimes unsure of where to meet founders outside of formal presentations or networks.
We are excited to kick off the event with a panel featuring three local startups and investment firms that have secured deals in the last year. The three teams will shed light into their founder-funder relationships, as well as share firsthand how they secured the partnership and how they will work together for their next stage of growth:
- Arden Tse of Accelerate Fund / Yaletown Partners and Ryan Tucker of G2V Optics
- Pat Lor of Panache Ventures and Tim Regnier of Smart Access
- Ha Nguyen of McRock Capital and Remi Schmaltz of Decisive Farming
Panel discussions are moderated by Andrea Drager, Principal at Azure Capital Partners.
Founders & Funders is open to all investors and tech founders with products at all stages. Join in virtually for a lighthearted and informative panel + networking to learn more about the opportunities available in our region and how to best prepare to work together in the future.
