  • “The conference was well organized from Friday to finish. Helped to make a lot of new contacts. Over the past 30 years I have been to many events this one was one of the best. All the staff from the office to the event were very helpful.”

    Private Investor Hartford, CT
  • “I thought the conference was well organized.  20min with 20 companies is just enough time to learn about a company and whether or not a second, longer, follow up conversation is warranted.  The one-on-one meetings allow you to direct the conversation where you want it to go and get your questions answered.  It was also a pleasure networking with other industry professionals.”

    Dorado Investments Chicago, IL
  • “I attended the Lake Okanagan capital conference last July and found the companies that presented were incredibly diverse. From clean energy to emerging life sciences to technology to minerals. It was a day of intense meetings with CEOs, CFOs, and CMOs digesting as much information as possible. The benefit of the capital conference as an investor is I choose the companies I want to follow up with and possibly invest in. The Capital conference gives you access to C level executives of publicly traded companies from a variety of industries. On the activity side, the events planned are first class. I had a great day at the Harvest Golf Course and even more impressive was the unplanned event the Capital Conference supported such as the Billy Idol concert in Kelowna, B.C. All in all best weekend of my summer.”

I have been on many mutual fund events, but never one in which I was meeting the company representatives directly, and be able to talk directly with them, share their enthusiasm in their projects and learn so much from some very innovative and results-driven people.  The event was indeed an eye opener, and my take-away was about 5-6 companies in which I would like to delve deeper for the investment opportunities they represent for my clients. Thank you so much for the opportunity to attend the conference and for being such a good host!”

  • "In my view, the Okanagan Capital Conference was a great success. I was impressed by the quality of the presenting companies, loved the format, and was so pleased to see the evidence of growing interest in non-resource small and microcap companies. For a conference like this, one of the most important litmus tests of success is whether some of the presenting companies were able to raise capital as a direct result of their attendance at the company; I am aware of at least 3 companies who have experienced this success, including 2 that I invested in following the conference."
