Entrepreneurship is Our Passion

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 stream-lined process within the larger entrepreneurial eco-system. 

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.
