Angel Investor Program

A network and training program for Canada’s angel investors



Angel investors play an important role in the tech ecosystem.

For many startups, angels are a vital part of their existence. Angel investors strengthen the capabilities of made-in-Canada startups, unlock opportunities to accelerate new innovation, and drive economic growth.

The DMZ Angel Investor Program provides a platform for angels – both new and experienced – to tap into a curated network of early-stage startups driving next-generation technology.

The program gives angels first-in-line access to deal flow, and also acts as a knowledge sharing hub to help angel investors develop and diversify their investment portfolios.

How it works

Angel investing is an incredibly fulfilling endeavour for several reasons – and this program aims to make the experience even more rewarding.

Angel investors are generally high net worth individuals that invest personal funds in early-stage startup ventures and receive an equity position in the company in exchange. Individuals must apply to the program to become verified members. For more information on eligibility, please contact us for an information package.

Profile picture of Beshoy Sidrak, General Partner, Lo Ventures
"Canada provides a strong landscape for angel investors. From our rich talent pool, university support, and non-dilutive funding available, risk is significantly reduced. My experience investing in a DMZ company, Kepler Communications, was better than I could have imagined. Supported by DMZ, they had the right tools to navigate a fast-paced and uncertain environment. We were able to achieve great success."
