One-on-One Curated Meetings

2020 Applications are now Open!

Each year the AVF hosts over 30 tech companies looking to commercialize and scale-up, and brings together over 45 different funding organizations from across Canada. This year innovators & founders will be strategically matched with Investors or Corporate Strategics based on their survey responses. Each participating Investor or Strategic will host these one-to-one matched meetings as we foster meaningful connections between tech innovators/entrepreneurs and potential investors or corporate partners. The curated meeting schedules will be available to registered AVF Delegates, but subject to the match being a close fit*.


  • FUNDERS: Investors or Strategic Partners seeking interaction with pre-commercial, near-commercial, scaling or growth-stage technology ventures. Including VCs, angels, banks, private investors, CVC’s, as well as established companies who offer innovators a potential customer, support or route to scale-up and market access (“Corporate Strategics”).
  • FOUNDERS: Technology Innovators and Entrepreneurs who are ready to make a “pitch” or start engaging with potential investors and corporate partners, in order to secure capital, customers or other support to commercialize their technology.

This means that the strongest matches will be given preference for a meeting spot, but applicants may receive introductions in lieu of meetings pending the survey outcomes. Participants of the Matchmaking Event must be registered for the Forum, and if confirmed for a meeting schedule must register online, or forfeit the meeting schedule and will not be eligible to participate.
