Southwestern Ontario Angel Group
The Southwestern Ontario Angel Group (SWOAG) is a not-for-profit corporation, founded in early 2008, with the goal of sourcing quality early-stage investment opportunities and presenting them to a like-minded community of Angel investors. The founding board members of SWOAG have been involved with Angel investing for a number of years and, through due diligence, education, and screening processes, we strive to achieve above average returns for our membership. In addition, our linkages with other Angel groups across the province will allow our membership to participate in other investment opportunities, as well as allow us to syndicate with other like-minded investors.
