AngelList is increasingly becoming the place where early-stage and seed deals first get off the ground. Of late, the growing community of startup founders and investors has been transitioning from a social network into an investment platform.

In short, angel5 provides a quick and dirty lists of investors based on market, region and even niche categories like Dog lovers and Moms.

Browsing the region splice gives users a quick idea of who might be Canada’s top five angel investors.

Dan Martell has 5,600 followers; Boris Wertz has 2,200 followers; Andy Yang has 2,100 followers; Jennifer Lum has 1,800 followers; and Chris Arsenault has 1,200 followers.

What do you think of the results? Are Version One Ventures’ Boris, Apricot Capital’s Jennifer, Dan, Extreme Startups’ Andy, and iNovia Capital’s Chris Canada’s top five angel investors?
