Network of Angel Organizations – Ontario
The Network of Angel Organizations – Ontario (NAO-Ontario), a member of the Ontario Network of Entrepreneurs, is the Administrator of Ontario’s Angel Network Program, on behalf of the Government of Ontario. Since 2007 its mission has been to create and grow non-profit Angel investor groups for all the regions of Ontario. Building the membership and best practices of these groups builds a more potent combination of mentorship and capital for innovative start-up companies in the province. NAO-Ontario also administers the Investing in Business Innovation Outreach Program, on behalf of the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario). Angels are accredited investors who directly contribute both their money and their expertise into early-stage companies seeking growth in Ontario, leading to job creation and an expanding economy
