Bob Chaworth-Musters, F.I.C.B., M.Sc.BA

Founder & Managing Director, Angel Forum - Vancouver

 

Bob Chaworth-Musters in 1997 founded the Angel Forum, which is the oldest Angel group in Canada and is held semi-annually in Vancouver.  The Angel Forum is where in one day, ~20 pre-screened companies seeking private equity financing of $100,000 to $1.5 million, give "live" presentations and exhibit their products to 50+ pre-screened individual and corporate Angel investors. See the National Post's "The Affluent" survey

Bob has been very active in educating entrepreneurs and investors through co-founding in 1998, the Investor Ready boot camp seminar series (42+ seminars held)  and  advanced workshops on Angel Venture Capital, Valuation, Due Diligence and Terms Sheets for more experienced CEOs and CFOs. 

He was a Founding Member and Board Director (2013-2013) of Canada’s National Angel Capital Organization.  Bob is also a member of the  the Vancouver Enterprise Forum and American Angel Capital Association

Prior to initiating the Angel Forum in 1997, he was with a major Canadian financial institution with executive responsibilities ranging from corporate and investment banking to private banking in Vancouver, London, England and Bahrain in the Middle East. He also was involved with a seed venture capital fund and a pre-shipment finance fund with a BC trade development company and a discretionary investment management firm for private investors.  Bob has lectured on investment funds and advised mid-sized companies, financial institutions and commercial crown corporations. He is also involved with an electricity and natural gas trading company. 

He was a Charter Student at Simon Fraser University, earning a B.A. in Economics and Commerce and later a M.Sc. in Business Administration from Boston University.  He is also a Fellow of the Institute of Canadian Bankers.

Outside of work, Bob has been an annual backpacker on week-long trips through BC’s coastal mountains and has now transitioned to week-long off-road biking through southern BC. In the winter he is a regular skier at Whistler Blackcomb. One of his recent overseas trips was to retrace an ancestor’s ground-breaking 1869 exploration of Patagonia.
