Who are we

Role

Boreal Ventures plays a major role in supporting some of Quebec’s most promising deep tech start-ups by providing them the capital to go from pre-seed up to series A. By investing early, Boreal Ventures aims to fill the financing gap that exists along the investment value-chain and get a first look at tomorrow’s most impactful science-enabled companies. By being Quebec’s first fund specialised in early-stage deep tech, our goal is to create a federating effect amongst the province’s accelerators, incubators and tech transfer agencies and thus facilitate the access to capital from across the world. We strive to build bridges and create lasting partnerships, both with entrepreneurs, corporate venture groups and other sector-focused venture capital funds.

Sectors

Deep tech is characterized by extended research and development and often requires larger capital requirements before getting to market. For these reasons, the venture capital landscape has progressively moved towards recurring revenue business models and software start-ups, creating a funding gap for scientific innovation. At Boreal Ventures, we believe the future is more than software.
We invest in cutting edge innovation in medtech, healthtech, artificial intelligence, semiconductors, cleantech, watertech, industry 4.0, IoT and connected objects.

Values

At Boreal Ventures we invest in people. As such, we support ambitious founders who understand that success often goes beyond the tech. We put individuals at the core of our approach and back those that match their ambition with business acumen and drive.
