In addition to the natural beauty all around, the city is consistently rated as one of the world's most liveable cities in the world.
But just because we're here, doesn't mean you have to be!
Our investment thesis does include a geographical preference for very early-stage startups based anywhere in Western Canada, i.e. west of Toronto/Waterloo. In part, this is because of the relatively larger "gap" in pre-seed funding, compared to other regions.
Many founders don't have enough savings to quit their job or side hustle to work full-time on their innovative ventures. With our funding, up to 4 co-founders would have enough to cover their living expenses for a year and focus 100% of their efforts on building up their startup. There should be enough left over to hire freelancers, get a summer intern, pay for marketing experiments, etc.
Flexible meeting and desk space, a mailing address, bookkeeping, part-time mentors (in addition to our in-house team), active promotion, and all we can do to support you!
In addition to other partner perks and discounts, e.g. $1k of Notion credits.
