Keiretsu Forum Toronto Welcomes Bioenterprise Corporation

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 3, 2013) - Keiretsu Forum Toronto announced yesterday that it is staring a new partnership with Guelph based Bioenterprise Corporation, a business accelerator and commercialization agent engaged in Agri-Technologies.

"Keiretsu Forum is, by nature, an invite-only angel investor network driven by its member and to this end the investments that our members choose is more opportunistic rather than sector specific. It is this characteristic that attracted us to Bioenterprise. They (Bioenterprise) will able to help us further diversify the deal flow that we expose not only our Toronto members but our members from across the globe." said Ozan Isinak, President of Keiretsu Forum Toronto.

Based out of San Francisco, Keiretsu Forum opened its 26th chapter in Toronto March of 2012 and has since been sourcing both local entrepreneurs as well as those that are in syndication through the network.

"Our goal is to be able to take local companies and syndicate them across the global Keiretsu network." said Leyuze Kozanoglu, Managing Director of the Toronto chapter. "We know there are great local companies but what they lack is international exposure. Having Bioenterprise as a trusted sponsor and partner will help us further our reach into local and regional entrepreneur talent. This is important for Toronto, it is important for Ontario and it is important for Canada," continues Ms. Kozanoglu.
