For Investors

Individual investors can invest with us in exceptional Canadian early-stage tech companies.

How it works

If you are an accredited investor, we invite you to create a free account. It will give you access to the Brightspark investor platform, where you can review investment opportunities.

What companies are on the Brightspark platform?

Our venture team – venture capitalists with 20+ years of experience – conduct due diligence and curate from the best investment opportunities in Canada based on a strict investment thesis. View our current portfolio to get an idea of the types of companies that make the cut. 

Investing alongside Brightspark 

Every time Brightspark invests in a new company, we create a single purpose Limited Partnership fund. Accredited investors in our network can invest in the fund, which in turn invests in the target company. Learn more about the investment structure.

After the investment 

Brightspark takes on the role of Managing Partner in the company-specific fund. We work closely with portfolio companies to grow them to their full potential, all the way to a liquidation event. We keep our investors informed of all developments via quarterly and annual reports, as well as monthly newsletters.
