Become An Angel
Windsor Essex Capital Angel Network (WECAN) investor members seek to invest in companies in which they can take an active interest through mentorship, financial investment and as potential business advisory board members or potential board of director members.
Angel networks like ours increase access to deal flow for the “solo” investor, as well as provide a best practices environment for due diligence, investing and ongoing business monitoring.
Windsor Essex Capital Angel Network – WECAN Investor
The Windsor Essex Capital Angel Network (WECAN) provides its investor group members with opportunities to increase their exposure to quality, investment-ready companies, and the ability to expand their network with like-minded investors. WECAN investors are successful entrepreneurs, business professionals and high net worth individuals who are seeking opportunities to invest in companies in which they can take an active interest.
WECAN Investors are accredited investors. Most members are active angel investors – they mentor the companies in which they invest by contributing time and experience as well as offering introductions to valuable contacts. They deploy their cumulative experiences and investment capital to help the next generation of entrepreneurs become successful.
WECAN powered by Equation
In 2020, WECAN Investors of Windsor-Essex has joined force with EQUATION ANGELS. Equation Angel is a joint venture among ANGEL ONE (Oakville-Burlington), GOLDEN TRIANGLE ANGEL (Kitchener-Waterloo), and SOUTHWESTERN ONTARIO ANGEL GROUP (London).
The collaboration with these Southwestern Ontario angel networks brings more resources, expertise and experience to WECAN Investors. It provides exposure to promising and strong early stage companies and it creates more avenues for investment.
A catalyst for entrepreneurs = an opportunity for investors
Angel investing goes beyond providing funds to high growth start-ups. Unlike venture capitalists, investors have the opportunity to share the wealth of their experience while also contributing to and growing the Windsor-Essex economy. This difference is what makes Angel investing more rewarding.
