Chris Cowan

 Chris has an Hons. B.A. in Labour & Management Relations, and History from the University of Toronto, 1989. He began his career with marketing/advertising and promotional sales and shortly thereafter joined the family business, Sacor Inc., in 1995. The company acts as an importer and distributor of surgical equipment and medical devices primarily in the fields of Ophthalmology, Orthopedics, and other niche surgical areas.

In the year 2000, Chris became President & CEO of the company which currently employs 5 people full-time with sales and distribution across Canada. In 2012, frustrated with traditional investing, Chris formed an informal, on-line community of “angels & entrepreneurs” from which to farm potential investments. He hopes to be able to incorporate some of its members into the York Angels group going forward.
