The Atlantic Venture Forum, or AVF, has announced 32 showcase companies that will be highlighted at the two-day conference this June.

The AVF will be held June 5 and 6 at the Halifax Convention Centre. Backed by the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency, the event aims to attract investors and influencers from outside the region, offering founders an opportunity to meet funders without leaving the East Coast. 

"The Atlantic Venture Forum features some of Atlantic Canada’s most promising technology companies," say organizers. "The Showcase provides early and growth-stage companies with unparalleled visibility to leading private equity and venture capital investors from across North America.

"A video presentation in our digital data room, on-site recognition, next-level networking tools, generous networking breaks, and a company profile in the event app are just a few of the ways emerging tech companies can leverage a spot in the Showcase."
