The Most Active Foreign Venture Capital Investors in Canada

Posted by Rob Lewis

In May Techvibes reported that a lack of local funding was forcing Canadian technology startups to seek foreign investors.

According to a Wavefront report, a "scarcity of investment funding in Canada tops the list of reasons why successful Canadian companies seek out foreign investors, particularly in the US.”

But who can Canadian entreprenuers look to outside of Canada for investment dollars? Probably best to reach out to investors that have experience investing in the Great White North before.

Thanks to Pitchbook, we have a list of the nine most active foreign venture capital investors in Canadian tech since January 1, 2009:

1. Braemar Energy Ventures: 7 deals

2. 500 Startups: 6 deals

3. EnerTech Capital Partners: 6 deals

4. Rho Ventures: 6 deals

5. Atlas Venture: 5 deals

6. Intel Capital: 5 deals

7. Point Nine Capital: 5 deals

8. Vertex Venture Capital Israel: 5 deals

9. Y Combinator: 5 deals
