Maple Leaf Angels
Established in 2007, Maple Leaf Angels (MLA) is a not-for-profit membership organization. Our mandate is to connect accredited investors and the brightest, most passionate entrepreneurs in a streamlined process within the larger entrepreneurial ecosystem. Maple Leaf Angels’ members are a group of high net worth private individuals who invest in seed and early-stage technology companies. While investments are made individually, MLA members enjoy the benefit of best practices and the collective knowledge and networks of the group. Maple Leaf Angels Capital Corporation (MLACC), a subsidiary of MLA, is the general partner for Maple Leaf Angels 48 Fund Limited Partnership (MLA48), a limited partnership comprised of several MLA members who wanted to invest collectively in seed and early stage companies. After successfully investing MLA48 Fund I, the partnership once again turned to its members and closed a second fund, MLA48 Fund II, changing the way founders think about raising capital by making investment decisions in 48 hours.
