We set up the $50 million Go Capital Fund in 2006 to create and support Quebec-based seed-stage firms developing new solutions in clean tech, information technology and life sciences.
Capital in motion
The Go Capital venture fund was managed by BDC Capital, which also acted as a limited partner.
This fund is closed to new investments and now focused on supporting existing portfolio companies.
- Cross-sector partners — federal, provincial and private

The fund brought together the major players in Quebec’s venture capital industry. Partners included:
- FIER Partenaires
