Our Strategic Priorties

Our Organization

Northern Ontario Angels (NOA) was created as a not-for-profit corporation in November 2005 as a catalyst to establish angel investment groups and create a gateway to facilitate connections between entrepreneurs and investors. Our goal is to stimulate investment capital into Northern Ontario companies to help them grow and succeed. This is accomplished by improving the flow of investment capital, investment education, and management expertise into high-growth potential Northern companies.

NOA is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, with the majority living and working in various communities across Northern Ontario. Directors include individuals from a variety of entrepreneurial and investment backgrounds. They are specifically selected for their unique connections, expertise, and influence to advance the NOA vision and mission. NOA is managed by a pan-Northern Executive Director, an Operations and Events Manager, and part-time consultants throughout the region.
