‘Tis the Season of Investing
With the holiday season upon us, it was a very busy month at York Angel Investors. Along with beginning due diligence on 8 companies that were part of our first Demo Day, on November 21, we also held another Investment Meeting on December 12. In addition, there were a number of holiday events within the startup ecosystem and York Angel Investors was well represented!
