Kelowna Chapter

Welcome to the Valhalla Angels Kelowna Chapter!

Valhalla Angels is an investor only membership group committed to supporting the startup ecosystem through early stage angel investing in the Okanagan, British Columbia, Canada and the globe.

The Kelowna chapter plays a significant role within the Valhalla Angels family as it was our first chapter in BC. The Kelowna forum has seen a wide variety of investor support and presenting companies throughout its history. Today, the Kelowna chapter continues to grow under the leadership of Grant Lawrence, where each month a diverse group of investors come together, from a variety of backgrounds and experiences who are looking to diversify their investment portfolio while supporting the startup ecosystem.

Each month Kelowna members have the opportunity to hear up to 4 – 10-minute company pitches followed by a question and answer session. In addition, each forum gives the investor members, sponsor representatives, presenting companies, and invited guests the opportunity to network and discuss the deals.

As a member of Valhalla Angels you are invited to attend forums in any of our chapter cities including Edmonton, Calgary, and Vancouver.  Members also have exclusive access to a member’s only platform that provides access to all deals, the ability to share due diligence materials and the ability to interact with other members and the entrepreneur.
