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).
Before co-founding Brightspark, Managing Partner Mark Skapinker was on the other side of the table as a tech entrepreneur.
