A simple but scalable new web presence for the first ever Canadian-focused venture seed fund from this global organization of investment programs for startups.
With the creation of 500 Canada (#500CAN), startups across the country will be able to leverage the 500 Startups brand and extensive network of mentors, founders, and partners that come from over 1,500 portfolio companies around the world.
500 Startups has already made 37 Canadian investments out of its Silicon Valley main funds including Breather, Influitive, Unbounce, CareGuide and more. 500 Canada plans to make 150+ investments into early-stage startups in the region over the next few years. 500 Canada will focus investments on capital-efficient businesses that can achieve profitability with less than $1M in total investment. The fund will be truly national in scope, with partners or associates in each major innovation centre, including Vancouver, Waterloo, Toronto, Montreal, and Fredericton.
