Karen Grant, Executive Director of the Angel One Investor Network, spearheaded the creation of this event and shares, “Angel One has attracted a great group of members who are engaged and passionate about their investee companies.  It is a great honour to be recognized as a leader by the National Angel Capital Organization for the number of investments made by our members in 2013.” Ian Brenneman from NACO was on hand to highlight the small but mighty efforts of the Angel One Investor Network who have performed at the top of the Angel Network’s for 2013.

Incoming chair, Colin Wyatt, who also served as master of ceremonies shared his insight on how he sees his role with the Angel One Investor Network, “As the incoming Chair of Angel One, I am taking over a well-oiled machine, put in place by my predecessor, Larry Innanen.  My goal is to help expand the membership and encourage more women investors to join our organization.” He sees events like the Founders and Funders Celebration as an opportunity to reach that goal.
