Fundica Roadshow Partnering with AngelList Syndicate Leads, Bringing Total Investment Award to $1,000,000

 
 

The Fundica Roadshow is thrilled to announce that syndicate leads from AngelList, a venture platform for investors and startups, will be joining their journey across Canada as 2019 investment partners. The leads will invest up to $200,000 in the winners of the Fundica Roadshow, bringing the final equity investment award—also powered by Panache Ventures and BCF Ventures—to a total of up to $1,000,000.

“We are always looking for new opportunities to connect promising startups with the right investors” Mike Lee, president of Fundica, “and AngelList’s mission to democratize the funding process perfectly complements our own.”

“Partnering with the Fundica Roadshow was a clear means of expanding deeper into the Canadian startup ecosystem and injecting more capital into its early stage ventures,” said AngelList partner Alex Norman. “We look forward to connecting this year’s finalists with a portion of our network, which now includes over 3,000 limited partners.”

The Fundica Roadshow’s first event took place April 4th in Vancouver. Two additional regional events will follow in Montreal (April 25th) and Toronto (May 16th) before the finale, June 20th in Montreal. Though up to sixteen startups will pitch at each of the regional stops, only nine will make it to the finale, where they will compete for the final equity investment award. A syndicate lead from AngelList will be present at each stop.
