4. What criteria will presenting companies have to meet?

The Selection Committee is comprised of investors who evaluate the applications on several criteria including fundability, market pain, management, completeness of proposal, etc. Our goal is to select the highest quality companies with the best chance of being funded when given exposure to the investment community. Applicant companies must have raised (closed) a minimum of $250,000 in angel/seed financing at the time of submitting their application.

5. Will any equipment be made available to presenters?

The Banff Venture Forum will provide full audiovisual services, including an overhead projector, computer, microphone, etc. The presenting companies must submit the presentation to the organizers prior to the conference so all the presentations can be loaded onto one computer.

6. My company is located in the United States, can I still participate in the forum?

Yes, the Forum is open to international companies as well.

7. What is the best way to get to Banff from the Calgary Airport?

The most efficient way is to rent a car from the airport. The Fairmont Banff Springs hotel is on the outskirts of Banff and is a 15 minute walk to the downtown area.  Alternatively, the town offers a shuttle service to and from the hotel.
