Celebrating the Holiday Season with York Angel Investors!

H

appy Holidays from York Angel Investors!

As the year comes to a close, York Angel Investors is thrilled to extend warm holiday greetings to our valued members and partners. November was yet another remarkable month for us, and we’re excited to share the highlights from our recent Investment Meeting and some upcoming events that you won’t want to miss.

Investment Meeting Recap – November 25th, 2022

On Thursday, November 25th, we hosted another successful hybrid format Investment Meeting. We’re deeply grateful to all members who participated, whether in person or via Zoom, for their active engagement during the Q&A sessions and Member Discussions. Your involvement is what makes our community thrive.

During the meeting, we had the pleasure of welcoming two promising startups:

Madge and Mercer – Modern Apothecary

Madge and Mercer is a premium women’s wellness brand designed to cater to the self-care needs of women aged 40 and over. Their innovative approach to well-being caught the attention of our members, and we’re excited to follow their journey.

Stash Energy

Stash Energy is at the forefront of sustainable energy solutions. They develop heat pumps with built-in energy storage, aimed at reducing customer energy bills and greenhouse gas emissions. Their mission aligns perfectly with our commitment to supporting innovative and environmentally conscious ventures.

In addition to our startup presentations, our partners from IG Private Wealth Management, Syrja & Associates, enlightened us with a presentation on “Lessons in Diversification.” They discussed how Angel Investments can be an integral part of a diversified investment portfolio. We extend our sincere gratitude to Scott Syrja for his insightful presentation and continued support.
