This week Canada’s early-stage investors and founders will meet in Calgary at Valhalla Private Capital‘s Vantage, Early-Stage Investing 2023 Summit.
Taking place on March 22nd, the day-long summit will take a dive deep into the asset class as an investment strategy and explore how the sector can create more global opportunities for startups and investors alike.
“Our early-stage investment network needs nurturing and growth to move deal flow,” says Teruel Carrasco, Valhalla Private Capital President, adding that Vantage is one of many initiatives Valhalla has planned in the coming year to help support founders and bring together firms to work in collaboration resulting in exceptional growth and positive returns for all.
With opening remarks from Carrasco alongside Valhalla Private Capital chairman Randy Thompson, as well as Alberta Innovates’ associate vice president of investment Douglas Holt; the summit will serve as a day of panel discussions to introduce and address early-stage investing to those who are interested but are concerned with the risk.
“There is an immense opportunity regionally for local and national private firms and individual investors to thrive. Yet, this is an asset class that is foreign to even many seasoned investors and family offices.”
The Vantage Summit is one of the first of many collaborations between Valhalla Private Capital and Plug and Play Alberta, who recently partnered to amplify both companies’ respective outreach across the North American startup ecosystem, increasing investor recruitment and engagement for both parties while supporting the startup ecosystem to gain traction globally.
