May 2013. Toronto, ON. – The recently launched Toronto chapter of the San Francisco based Keiretsu Forum is now reaching out to qualified local entrepreneurs throughout the GTA and surrounding regions to help them present and gain traction with its global community of accredited investor members. “For the last two months, Keiretsu Forum Toronto was showcasing growth companies that had gained traction from its global network of chapters. We are now at a stage where we have the capacity and depth to help local entrepreneurs gain access to a global network of angel investors and new distribution channels” said Ozan Isinak, President of Keiretsu Forum Toronto.
As one of the largest invitation-only angel investing networks in the world, Keiretsu Forums’ community of 1000 plus accredited angel investor members throughout twenty six chapters on three continents have to date provided over USD400 million of capital into technology, consumer products, internet, healthcare, life sciences and real estate companies throughout the world.
“The real value of Keiretsu for entrepreneurs comes from our ability to syndicate successful companies throughout the network. This enables companies to gain access to new talent, new distribution channels and ultimately raise larger amounts of capital. It really set them apart from those companies and investors locked into the local eco-system. Both investors and entrepreneurs realize the value once they see a Keiretsu Forum member meeting in action” added Isinak.
