We are looking forward to attending the Agri-Investment Symposium in Vancouver on September 12th and 13th. The Symposium enables twelve agri-business ventures to make structured presentations to targeted investors.
The Vancouver symposium is the fourth in an ongoing series following 2010 events in Halifax, Toronto, and Saskatoon. Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada is organizing the series through 2013 so there could be a return trip to B.C. before the end of the run.
We are actively involved prior to the Symposium as a member of the Investor Advisory & Selection Committee. We reviewed presentation requests from agri-business entrepreneurs and helped select finalists.
Selection criteria include the enterprise, commercialization plan, return, environmental impact, and regulatory requirements. More detail is available on Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada website.
We’re excited to be the host city for the Agri-Investment Symposium. Agri-based ventures are a big part of our angel and venture capital investment goals so we will post again after the event with impressions and news.
