Our Approach

Our Approach image
At Brightspark Ventures, our investment approach has always been to work with software companies that address emerging markets or business’ critical issues with unique intellectual property.

We focus on companies with “must-have” solutions that have traction in the real world. In order to capitalize on these opportunities, we believe that young companies must exclusively focus their early stage phase on value-creating activities such as building superior technology and gaining important customer feedback.
Brightspark cherry picks Canada’s best software, mobile, and Internet companies with a strong focus on repeat entrepreneurs.


Brightspark Ventures is comprised of experienced professionals responsible for identifying, evaluating and managing early stage software investment opportunities. We work closely with entrepreneurs during the initial investment phase to complete all due diligence and investment analysis. We often take lead positions in funding rounds in which we participate. We work closely with the angel community, venture capital firms and institutional investors to structure syndicated investments.

Brightspark works with entrepreneurs to build and grow successful companies.  It has built its unique reputation from being a real partner for entrepreneurs.

Brightspark Ventures has twice won the Canadian Venture Capital Association “Deal of the Year Award”, for the sale of ThinkDynamics to IBM and for the sale of Radian6 to Salesforce.com.
