York Angel Investors – Congratulations on the Closing of HTBase!

 

Congratulations HTBase!

HTBase

Dear Angels and Friends,

York Angel Investors is excited to announce the closing of HTBase!
February 22nd, 2016 – Markham, Ontario, CANADA

York Angel Investors Inc. (YAI), is proud to announce an investment in the amount of  $900,000.00 CDN with HTBase of Toronto, Ontario. This investment was done in collaboration with Golden Triangle Network (GTAN), Laurier Startup Fund, NorthSpring Capital Partners and Spark Angels.

Bruno Andrade, CEO of HTBase, sought angel investment for both financial reasons as well as strategic advice. “I had an opportunity to work with the MaRS Investment Accelerator Fund (IAF), which was a great resource and I was able to meet some amazing individuals through this channel. It was through the IAF that I was introduced to the Angels, including Rudy Joss from York Angel Investors (YAI), amongst others. One of the Angels joined our Board, in fact. Aside from the capital, which was important, it was the partners I found, and I would call them ‘partners’ rather than simply ‘investors’, and their deep expertise, that really added value.”

YAI deal lead, Rudy Joss recognized the full potential of HTBase early on, and worked very hard to keep the momentum moving. “It’s amazing that a company like HTBase, that is new to the market and still fairly small, has managed to secure important contracts with some major corporations,” says Joss. “We liked this opportunity because it was in the tech space, which is familiar territory for us, investment-wise. Moreover, we had seen Bruno’s credentials and were excited to meet him.  As a strong entrepreneur with excellent technical and administrative skills, Bruno was as much an appeal as the investment itself.”

With the funding now received, HTBase  is looking to expand their marketing & distribution plan, hire a sales force and increase the size of the development team. “We’re expanding on the operations side, bringing more people on board to help us enhance our marketing strategy and establish ourselves in other countries,” Andrade says. “We’re definitely excited about growing our base in the United States, which is where our expansion plan lies right now.”

Today, York Angel Investors Inc. (YAI), is proud to announce an investment in the amount of $ CDN 542,500.00 with Enthusiast Gaming Inc. of Toronto, Ontario. This investment was done in collaboration with Spark Angels.

Connections in the News: Mina Mitry from Kepler Communications Receives High Praise

Kepler Communications, a 2016 Techstars Seattle company based in Toronto, Canada, announced a $5 million seed funding round from lead investor IA Ventures, joined by Techstars Ventures, Liquid 2 VC, SK Ventures, Zelkova Ventures, Plug & Play Ventures, V1 VC, Globalive Capital, and BDC. The funding will support the company’s launch of two communications satellites by the end of 2017, which will form the initial pieces of a network that the company says will reduce costs and latency for accessing satellite data.

Co-founder and CEO Mina Mitry has high praise for the support the company received during its time in Seattle, citing in particular Techstars Seattle’s managing director, Chris DeVore, and Joe Landon of the Space Angels Network.

It’s worth reading Mitry’s perspective on the fund-raising process, and the out-sized attention the tech world pays to venture funding events, as opposed to more meaningful milestones on the path to building a real business:

“All too often I find entrepreneurs get praise for raising investment while those building businesses that bootstrap to exciting revenues go unnoticed. The converse should be true as bootstrapped businesses have actually built a machine (business) that works. We’re only at what I like to call step 0 of execution; we’ve got the parts and resources to build our machine, but some assembly is required.

“Fund raising quickly becomes a toxic activity that takes away from building a real business. It’s easy to get roped in by the allure of travelling to different destinations, meeting exciting people, and landing investor checks, so much so that you unwittingly ignore (or want to ignore) very real problems that need to be solved. To that end, I made every effort to minimize how much of the team’s most precious and finite resource – time – would be spent to get the necessary money resource. This came at the cost of isolating myself from most business operations and the team for an extended period of time. Needless to say, I’m happy to be off the fundraising trail.”

A Message from NACO: Join the talks on policy and the future of angel investing in Canada

Angel Investing In Canada - York Angel Investors

Dear Fellow Angels and Friends,

Please see a message below from our industry colleague NACO.

NACO-Logo

Dear Members,

As the champion of Canada’s Angel Asset Class, NACO works to voice the interests and concerns of our Angel community to Government, with the goal of ensuring that policy changes are made with the best available information and with input from investors on the front lines.

Over the last six months, we’ve been specifically working with the Government of Canada to ensure they are aware of the needs and aspirations of Canadian Investors for their upcoming Canadian Innovation Agenda. For some background on our basic message to the government, click here to read Ian Bandeen and Bev Tudhope’s March op-ed in the Globe and Mail on the need for government action.

Our goal is to help the Government improve the conditions for success for early-stage Canadian companies by increasing the quantity and sophistication of available private risk capital, a critical component for company growth and development. As such, we are proud to announce the release of our first ever public policy white-paper, on “Stimulating Investment in Canadian Ventures”, which outlines key initiatives the government could take to fully support entrepreneurship in Canada to grow and thrive. The full document and executive summary can both be found by following the link below:

The paper above was prepared by NACO’s Policy and Research Committee in consultation with our members and strategic partners. To coincide with the release of the paper, Mike Volker, the Chair of the committee, was also featured in an opinion article published in the (Ottawa) Hill Times on Aug. 22. The article can be read here.

NACO is now working on behalf of our members to submit a more fulsome submission that addresses the questions posed by the Government’s consultations on Canada’s Innovation Agenda.  However, we encourage each of you, as active angel investors and members of NACO, to get involved in the conversation with the Government and let your voices be heard.  More information can be found on the Government’s consultation website.

We strongly encourage you to submit your own ideas to the Government by visiting the website here.

Yours in Angel Investment,

Yuri Navarro
