Investing into Canadian Angel | Pre-Seed | Seed | Series A technology companies.
WATERLOO STRONG SINCE 2009
At GTAN, our investors rally ambitiously and with purpose into early-stage tech startups within the Toronto-Waterloo Corridor and across Canada.
Together with our partners, we are one of the country’s most prolific investment communities. And we syndicate well with others.
Waterloo is Canada’s technology hub, a community of builders and investors, and our home.
ACTIVE FOR THE LONG TERM
Over $100M of local angel capital has been invested into >200 companies by our members.
These companies have gone on to raise over $1B in follow-on capital and continue to drive remarkable financial impact. Our portfolio is class-leading in IRR and in outsized economic impact here in Waterloo/Toronto and across Canada.
While angel investing is serious business, at our core, we are here to collaborate, and to be available for founders and aspiring angels alike.
Being part of our community is more than deals and expanding a network. We rely on our partners to help angels and founders accomplish the near impossible.
We welcome you to come and see for yourself if angel investing and our group are the right fit for you.
Each month we host investment meetings with 3 to 5 founders.
We have an ecosystem leading process designed to be quick, value-add, and the professional experience you deserve.
We are Canada’s fastest top-up and follow-on capital program.
If you have a reputable lead investor on a pre-seed to series A round, we can top up rounds from $100k to $1M at ecosystem-leading speeds.
Historically investment has not been equally distributed. While we are proud that over 20% of our historic capital has gone to women-led companies, well above the industry average of 3.5%, we have a long way to go.
Our members represent the full spectrum of diversity. We live to these values by maintaining 50% gender parity on our board.
We are committed to investing into great founders and nurturing future angels, whomever they are.
