Meet Potloc, a new addition to Brightspark’s portfolio. We are excited to partner with Rodolphe Barrere and Louis Delaoustre on their journey to transform the way retail businesses survey their existing and potential customers. Using an innovative proprietary methodology, Potloc’s platform gathers rich qualitative insights that are geo-targeted, unbiased, and at a fraction of the cost of traditional survey methods.
For Brightspark, building a Platform strategy meant evaluating the current value-add we offered and establishing new initiatives to support our current and future portfolio. We interviewed our founders and worked backwards to identify gaps and areas of improvement (more on that later). And, staying true to our firm’s philosophy, we ensured that our vision for new Platform projects would not be at the expense of the highly relevant, meaningful value that we provide to the individual companies in our portfolio.
An unprecedented number of new tech startups continue to emerge in Canada, and many of them are pushing the envelope in markets that tech investors never would have considered (or had access to) in the past.
As Benedict Evans of Andreessen Horowitz told Bloomberg, “stop thinking about technology as something separate and apart from other companies or industries.”
So, how can you be a successful tech investor when everything is tech?
We are excited to announce the launch of a new $50-75m fund. The Brightspark Canadian Opportunities Fund is structured as a more traditional VC fund, is fully managed by Brightspark, and will invest in synch with our deal-by-deal Single Purpose Vehicles (SPVs).
