Angels for Climate Solutions

Powered by TD Friends of the Environment Foundation, Vancouver Economic Commission’s popular Angels for Climate Solutions returns with upgrades to investor and startup experiences.

Angels for Climate Solutions supports technologies that combat climate change by empowering angel investors to increase the flow of early-stage capital for local climate-focused startups. Delivered in partnership with Spring Activator, Volition and Foresight Canada, the program takes a cohort-based approach to education and training with two intersecting streams.

The first is geared towards angel investors looking to make early-stage investments into climate technologies, and the second is designed for climate-focused startups looking to fundraise.

Deadlines for application:
Startups: November 28, 2022 & Investors: December 16, 2022
