In light of the challenges faced by very early stage technology companies in Quebec in the mid-2000s, BDC Capital established GO Capital. GO Capital is a $50 million venture capital fund that is dedicated to creating and supporting seed-stage firms in Quebec in the fields of clean technologies, information technologies and life sciences. GO Capital is managed by BDC Capital, who also participates as a limited partner. BDC Capital matches GO Capital's investments.
GO Capital’s limited partners are:
- FIER Partenaires
- Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec
- BDC Capital
- Fonds de solidarité FTQ
- Fondaction CSN
GO Capital’s investment period was completed in 2006; therefore, investments are only made to support its existing portfolio companies.
