Financial programs with significant and sustainable impact
We manage the Government of Canada’s Venture Capital Action Plan (VCAP) and Venture Capital Catalyst Initiative (VCCI) Program, as well as BDC’s pandemic response Bridge Financing Program (BFP).
Building networks, sharing knowledge
We provide support outside of our investments and subsidize programs to help build a generation of leaders who will strengthen the performance and sustainability of the Canadian venture capital industry.
Leading perspective and insights
From blogs to articles and studies, our always-growing repository of resources is a hub of best practices and leading thinking for Canada’s venture capital players.
Here to develop a solid Canadian Venture Capital ecosystem
Our programs make Canada’s venture capital ecosystem stronger. We grow the venture capital market by connecting our general and limited partners with experts who can help them develop their skills and build their connections, and by managing programs on behalf of the Government of Canada, to help Canadian companies become global champions.
