In late 2016, with prompting from the Faculty of Engineering, Patrick Martinson, Prem Kalevar & Vinit Nijhawan kicked off efforts to establish the University of Waterloo's very first alumni angel group. The first event (pictured below) was held in Toronto on March 7, 2017 and marked the beginning of Waterloo Alumni Angels. Since then, Waterloo Alumni Angels has continued to hold events roughly once per quarter, with each subsequent event growing in size & impact.
“...the applications we get from Waterloo students are better than those we get from students of any other university.”
