Our Mission

We're focused on filling the gap of resources and capital needed within early-stage startups. With a strategic venture capital partner, we have the ability to invest in you from day one to help remove the barriers usually associated with building, launching, and scaling up. We value the importance of innovation and are always finding new ways to support entrepreneurs and their start-ups. We are currently headquartered in Calgary, but like the entrepreneurs and startups we support, we look forward to expanding.
