In over 20 years of investing in venture capital, we’ve developed a serious flair for finding the very best early-stage companies in Canada.
We get excited about solutions that are...
The company is solving a distinct problem that is of uttermost importance to customers, and they have developed a compelling solution.
The company has at-least a “minimum viable product” and has referenceable traction, usually in the form of bona fide sales.
The solution is unique, and the company shows that it can be a market leader, not a small fish in a big sea of players. We expect defensible intellectual property.
Significant dollars are already being spent in the industry and their market is growing today, not simply prognosticated by futurists.
The upside of the company is very large, with significant market potential. We’re not looking for companies that will double in size – think much larger.
In the tech, SaaS, or mobile industry
We are founder-oriented and actively help grow the companies we invest in. This means that we look for solutions that are in a category that Brightspark understands and has contacts in.
