BELIEVING IN YOU
FROM DAY ONE.

WE ARE BUILDING THE MOST EXTENSIVE & DIVERSE NETWORK OF TECH LEADERS ACROSS CANADA’S BEST UNIVERSITIES.

The best people to find inspiring student founders are the people sitting next to them in the classroom.

Our Investment Team is built from the best talent across all fields, from undergraduates to PhDs, with a singular purpose – to back the best student founders in Canada. Nowhere else will you find students more passionate about game-changing founders and companies. The strength of our team is our diversity of thought.

Our Impact Teams are creating value at many levels of the Canadian tech startup ecosystem — from supporting our portfolio companies, to working with other VCs and entrepreneurs. These teams include Strategy, Data, Platform, Partnerships, Business Development, Operations, Content, and Marketing.
