About the Vaughan Chapter
Vaughan is one of the fastest growing municipalities in Canada. It is the fifth-largest city in the Greater Toronto Area, and the 17th largest city in Canada. As the fourth chapter to launch in Keiretsu Forum Central Canada, Vaughan represents an important stop for entrepreneurs moving through our regional roadshow. Keiretsu Forum Central Canada has forged a partnership with the City of Vaughan and will be working closely with the VICC (Vaughan International Commercialization Center), an initiative focusing on helping companies in their efforts to soft-land in North America by leveraging the Vaughan region’s entrepreneurial and innovative eco-system.
Companies engaging with Keiretsu Forum Central Canada will now have the unique opportunity to present in front of active angel investors via a two-day road show of London, Waterloo, Vaughan and Toronto. It is not all about capital. It is also about licensing and distribution. Qualifying companies have the ability to syndicate globally for capital as well as for new distribution partners and new clients.
City of Vaughan Mayor Maurizio Bevilacqua shared his thoughts on Keiretsu’s latest expansion. “It’s a pleasure to welcome the Vaughan chapter of Keiretsu Forum to the Vaughan International Commercialization Centre. Their success in high-quality, diverse investments will be an asset to the centre and to our business community. As a growing city, we know that by supporting ideas to promote innovation and leading-edge thinking, we will place Vaughan at the forefront of 21st-century cities and allow us to take our place on the world stage.”
We encourage you to join us at one of our Forum meetings and to contact Ozan Isinak, President of the Keiretsu Forum Central Canada to learn more about our exciting presence in this wonderful and vibrant region.
