The beginning of November kicked off with another great event, “Why I Invest in Victoria!” This luxury yacht investor cruise treated guests to an informative and educational afternoon while travelling from Sidney to the Victoria inner harbour.
Taking in some beautiful Pacific Northwest views was on the menu along with learning from new and seasoned angel investors about how they are investing in local companies. Presenters also shared their thoughts on what they see as the next exciting company to back.
The yacht was a special setting for a discussion to hone a better understanding of term sheets, what to look for in a tech investment, understanding tax advantages when using your RRSP, increasing awareness for women investors (WEL), and even some sound legal advice from Dentons who is Capital Investment Networks sponsor for November. Guests left with more confidence about early stage investing and with new knowledge about local companies worthy of investment.
Many thanks to the Maple Leaf Cascadia for the elegant setting and an array of delicious appetizers paired with a quality wine selection.
