We look forward to opening our doors with an all-new reinvented Forum experience! The two-day forum has been redesigned to feature a full first day of curated delegate-only meetings on June 26 at Volta.
One-on-One Curated Meetings
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 2019 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, pension or mutual funds, 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.
*Please note that there are a limited number of meeting spots available. This means that the strongest matches will be given preference for a meeting spot on June 26, 2019, 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 by no later than June 7, 2019, or forfeit the meeting schedule and will not be eligible to participate.
