Founder & CEO Sampler

"I really enjoyed pitching at Waterloo Alumni Angels. You can really tell that this is a group of sophisticated investors. The make-up is predominantly of ex-entrepreneurs who understand what it's like to be in your shoes." 

Leah Skerry

Co-Founder & CEO Squiggle Park

"Taking part in Waterloo Alumni Angels pitch was a great way to instantly connect to Ontario VCs that are making a big impact in Canada. I have continued relationships with a few investors that have supported Squiggle Park through their mentorship and will likely invest in the future." 

Justin Hein

Co-Founder & CEO RoseRocket

"WAA was an extremely well-run event with strong angels! Prem was excellent, pre, during and post the event. I would go back in a second"

“...the applications we get from Waterloo students are better than those we get from students of any other university.”
