Cathryn Atkinson, writing for The Globe and Mail, has published an article about super-Angels stepping in to fill the gap left by early-stage venture capital. She defines such as people who invest several million dollars spread over 20 or more companies.
Eminent persons quoted for this article include Mike Volker, 2009 Canadian Angel of the Year; Bryan Watson, Executive Director of NACO; and Boris Wertz, a super-Angel from Vancouver formerly COO of AbeBooks.com.
It should be noted by our readers that NACO defines a “super-Angel” as a combination of the means with which to make several Angel investments, an extensive track record of Angel investment, and actively advocating for the community of Angels.
