about us

As engineers, we are both dedicated to finding and digging deep into creative, game-changing tech and investing in the future of what it can become and do for Canada. We support and develop the next generation of leaders, bringing a depth of management experience and support to every company we invest in.

Our discipline and experience is what sets us apart. We drill down into companies to find their magic, we identify best-in-class technology and companies that demonstrate a firm grasp of their market and have developed a product to fit it. And we work closely with university and non-university incubators to find them.

We invest solely in the under-serviced sector of earliest/seed capital because we know we can have a meaningful impact on the companies that need capital the most, and because we know that by doing so, we can deliver the best possible returns for our investors.

We are the first-choice investor of Canada’s tech start-up leaders.
We are RiSC Capital.

WHY US

Investing early in disruptive technology.

We welcome technical risk because we understand it. We know how to identify opportunities that scare others off.
Our deep knowledge and experience allows us to mitigate that risk and use it to our, and our investors’, advantage.
We have been investing in Start-Ups for over 15 years each and know what it takes to get an investment to the finish line.

We manage a Corporate Accelerator fund for Blue Impact (Cossette) in the marketing-tech space.
