Who We Are

Your Partners, From Startup To Exit

Our team of experienced venture capital investors is intimately acquainted with the FinTech market. Our founding team invested together while at RBC Venture Partners for over a decade. In late 2014, we purchased the remaining companies in that portfolio, with support of leading institutional investors to create our first independent fund. In January 2016, we raised our second fund.

Our philosophy is as straightforward as our strategy – identify disruptive, game-changing opportunities and the entrepreneurs with the passion to make them a reality, and lend our resources and expertise towards that goal every step of the way. We don’t chase trends. We don’t care if what you’re doing is “sexy” – we just care that it will make a difference to the global businesses that you serve.

Capable. Experienced. Committed. We are more than just investors, we’re your teammates.

How We Work

Our Approach

Our Philosophy

We understand

that building a world class software company is a marathon, not a sprint.

And we know

that when times get tough and the roadblocks start to build up, a strong and knowledgeable investor makes all the difference.

We work with our investee companies through each journey from start to finish

making sure we hit every metric and milestone on the route to a successful exit – together.

 

We believe

that our approach enables us to deliver better returns for our stakeholders.


Committed To Our Community

Businesses prosper when we work together to build a better world for all.

Share the Upside

Our team works hard to support the community we live and work in. We are founders and driving forces behind the Upside Foundation, an exciting venture that lets Canadian entrepreneurs give back to our society.

 

Supported by startups, VCs and associations, the process is simple: Donate options, not cash, and when you have that huge exit, those options convert into sorely needed funds for Canadian charities. It’s just one way we’re building a better world.

 

SHARE THE UPSIDE!

Find the Brightest

We are proud to be the founders of the Financial Services Venture Capital Alliance, an organization focusing on bringing together the best and brightest general partners investing in and around financial services.

 

As the founders, co-chairs, and only Canadian fund in the association, our contributions firmly embedded us in the greater North American FinTech network.
