The National Angel Capital Organization (NACO) has found its new leader after former CEO, Yuri Navarro, announced he was stepping down in December. Claudio Rojas, who has played the role of founder, managing director, board member, and advisor to a number of prominent Canadian organizations, will now take on the title of NACO’s CEO.
BetaKit spoke with Rojas on Friday in an exclusive interview to talk about bringing a founder-centric approach to NACO, the state of angel investing in Canada, and his plans to support a tech ecosystem he says is struggling to evolve from startup to scale-up.
Making magic for entrepreneurs
Rojas stated that he plans to continue to scale an organization that has become the only national industry associations for angel investors in Canada. Founded in 2002, NACO already represents more than 40 networks, comprising 3,000 angels investors.

Microsoft appears to be working with developer Epic Games on a Fortnite-themed Xbox One S console.
An image leaked by German outlet Winfuture points to the existence of an Xbox One S console sporting a black-to-purple gradient.
Brad Sams of Microsoft outlet Thurott first teased the console on Twitter and Windows Central is now corroborating the veracity of Winfuture‘s image.
The console is particularly noteworthy because there hasn’t yet been a purple Xbox One S. Most of the Xbox One S bundles — including the existing Fortnite one — are white. Meanwhile, older models of the Xbox One, as well as the 4K-capable Xbox One X, are typically offered in black.
Outside of the special colour scheme, the new Fortnite bundle appears to be a standard console (rather than the recently released digital-only Xbox One S) that includes some bonus content for the game.
It’s unclear how much the bundle will cost or when it may be released. However, Microsoft has its major annual Xbox briefing at the Elect..

But in one way it has been good for investors who snatched up the newly public companies’ stock: The losses have scared off the competition, giving the leaders a duopoly in almost every American city.
Story continues below The two San Francisco companies have already lost a combined $13 billion. And with no clear road to profits ahead, no one else has much of an incentive to mount a challenge using the same model relying on people driving their own cars to pick up passengers that summon them on a smartphone app, said Susan Shaheen, co-director of the Transportation Sustainability Research Center at the University of California, Berkeley.
Even if another rival dared enter the market, it would likel..
