Investor Overview

Keiretsu Forum brings together its investor members with the best investment opportunities in emerging companies from around the globe.

While we actively support our local Ontario entrepreneur community, we also recognize that some of the best investment opportunities come from other geographies. Each month we bring local and globally sourced companies to our forum meetings.

At Keiretsu Forum Central Canada you will see investment opportunities that are totally unique to our members.

Membership in Keiretsu Forum Central Canada is by invitation only and is extended to accredited individual investors who share our vision and will actively contribute to our process. Individual investors make up approximately 80-85% of chapter membership. The balance of our members are Corporate Investors, Sponsors, Partners, and Service Providers.

Keiretsu Forum Central Canada members pay an annual membership fee to maintain their status.

Keiretsu Forum is not a fund and does not invest directly as a corporation. Its members make individual decisions on investments on a common term sheet. Our role is to serve our members by delivering access to the best deal flow around the world.
