President, Clear Risk
Thanks First Angel Network! In a region where it is very difficult to raise growth capital, you helped us raise the money we needed relatively quickly and you have been an excellent partner! Were it not for FAN, companies like ClearRisk wouldn't be able to thrive and grow in Atlantic Canada.
President and CEO, Solace Power Inc.
The investment from First Angel Network was instrumental in enabling Solace Power to grow. We were able to bring on new team members who played a critical role in commercializing our wireless power technology.
Angel investors provide capital and expertise to early stage businesses
First Angel Network (FAN) co-founder and director Brian E. Lowe was one of five panelists to take part in an angel investors session at Invest Atlantic in September 2017. FAN wants to bring more active angels forward to expand the Newfoundland and Labrador’s ecosystem in an effort to support good, early stage companies and entrepreneurs.
