BDC Venture Capital

Direct investments

We operate in different ways and through different vehicles, but at BDC Venture Capital our ambition is shared: to create great Canadian success stories, to demonstrate that early-stage investors can achieve their objectives, and to showcase Canada to the world as a vibrant and sustainable environment for technology investment, innovation and commercialization.

Our direct investment strategy is implemented through a series of targeted internal funds or portfolios. These include our three internal General Partner funds: Energy/Cleantech Fund, Healthcare Fund and IT Fund. In addition, we manage a direct investment fund through our Diversified Portfolio team, as well as our Quebec-specific GO Capital “sidecar” fund.

Our Strategic Investments and Initiatives team deals with both direct and indirect investments. This is a uniquely qualified team with an ambitious mandate: to support and significantly impact the Canadian venture capital and innovation ecosystems.
