Meet Kristina Milke and Ryan Heit, members of one Canada’s most active Angel investment groups, VA Angels. Together, they work on VA Angels deal intake and screening, and are responsible for supporting the group’s entrepreneurs. With locations in Calgary, Edmonton, Kelowna, Phoenix and Winnipeg, VA Angels is one of Canada’s most prominent Angel groups.
In NACO’s 2014 Report on Angel Investing Activity in Canada, released in June 2015, VA Angels was ranked as the #2 Angel Group in Canada for number of investments made. Randy Thompson, VA Angels CEO and Founder, credits Milke and Heit for this accomplishment and TEC Edmonton for making their involvement possible.
We asked them a few questions about the activity report ranking, and VA Angels success to date.
