The Kootenay Investment Challenge is a 10-week online program in the fall of 2022 facilitated by Spring Activator that brings together investment-ready tech entrepreneurs and investors looking to impact the local community.
Participants of the entrepreneur cohort will learn the fundamentals of seeking investor funding, build out their data room and develop an investor-ready pitch.
Meanwhile, the investor cohort will learn how to assess a startup’s investment worthiness, conduct proper due diligence and learn the foundations of angel investing. The Challenge will conclude with the investor cohort selecting one Kootenay region entrepreneur to receive an angel investment.
This collaborative initiative between Spring Activator and the Kootenay Association for Science and Technology (KAST) is funded in partnership with the British Columbia Rural Dividend Fund.
