Raphael Christian-Roy

Raphaël has always been an entrepreneur. As a teenager, he went from owning a car garage to a window-cleaning business. It’s only once he attended his first Startup Weekend that he grasped the power of tech entrepreneurship.

He is pursuing a bachelor in software engineering and is developing Volume7, a digital product agency for startups, for the past year and a half.

Front Row Ventures’ tech entrepreneur is actively involved in various events as speaker, coach and participant.

Managing Partner

Éléonore Jarry Ferron

With a bachelor in accounting, Éléonore contemplated a career in corporate finance. Her summer studying tech entrepreneurship at Stanford made her choose a totally different path: venture capital.

She joined Pléiade Capital, a VC student club, and started a master in financial accounting. Her combined efforts paid off, Brightspark Ventures poaching her from EY less than a year later.

Helping out rising entrepreneurs, our VC brain is also dedicated to women in tech with Technovation Montreal.
