The GAN Annual Angel Investing Winter Summit will be hosting a pitch competition for early-stage companies who are “Angel Ready”. A small group of 8 – 10 selected founders will have the opportunity to make a 5-minute presentation, followed by 5 minutes of Q&A to the participants of the Winter Summit.
The presentations will be judged both by a participants’ poll and an expert panel of angel investors who will assess the Angel Readiness and Value Proposition for angel investment. There will be an Open category and a Local category. The Local category will be for businesses based in the Simcoe, Collingwood, Barrie, Muskoka regions. The 2 winners, as selected by the judges, will be given an opportunity to pitch at a formal GAN Investor Meeting in early 2020.
All selected presenters will be given a complimentary pass to attend the Winter Summit.
The application process is as follows:
All Winter Summit attendees will be given access to a mobile app for judging each opportunity. A panel of judges will review the attendees voting and feedback, provide their own assessments and the judges will determine the companies and founders most ready for angel investment and select the winner in each category.
Angel Readiness is assessed according the 15-point Angel Ready checklist, that assesses the value proposition and the ability to deliver outstanding financial reward to the angel investors.
