We want to help

We’re not a typical VC. We don’t just write cheques and then drop-in quarterly for a performance review. Our interest is in working with you to get you as big as we can as fast as we can. What we offer: 

  • Strategy – where you are now is not likely where you’ll stay. We’ll be there to help with planning the major shift and refinements in your corporate development.
  • Marketing & Sales – we recognize that not every company is a marketing & sales machine. We have top-notch marketing and sales expertise to help you become one.
  • Network – our network is your network. We have vast connections to best-in-class vendors and sales prospects. 
  • Recruitment – it’s likely you’ll need to expand your team and shepherd your culture. Getting this right is one of the toughest challenges. We can help.
  • Operations – as the company grows, so too will its need to become more infrastructurally solid. We have deep expertise with financial, legal and systems evolution.
  • Follow-on Funding – it’s entirely possible that another round of investment could be required. We’re in a position to provide follow-on capital or develop and lead syndicates.

Founder’s Board

We have assembled an exceptional Founder’s Board. This isn’t a ceremonial grab-bag of our friends. This is a collection of done-it-before experts who have all written a cheque to be part of our fund. They will be available to provide perspective on your growth plan, executional development and to make introductions to their networks. We think they can be difference makers in transforming our portfolio companies from moderate successes to blockbusters.
