We aren’t hunting unicorns around here. Our approach is help people create, of all ages, and build economic value for themselves, their families, clients and their geographic region by leveraging the knowledge, talent, networks and passion of our local technology community.
We believe that the world of tech startups has become too complicated and costly, inside and outside of Silicon Valley. That existing Canadian incubators, accelerators and entrepreneur development programs need competition.
But, mostly, as felllow practicing entrepreneurs we believe we have the right formula to engage and support entrepreneurs toward true innovation and economic prosperity.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
Prime Minister Wilfrid Laurier once said that “the 20th century belongs to Canada.” If we support our homegrown entrepreneurs in the tech sector with the right blend of funding and support, we can make that happen in the 21st.
We invest almost all of our fund in Canadian companies. We are big believers in the potential of Canadian startups. I do not believe there has ever been a better time than now to start a company in Canada.
