In case you missed the crowds dressed in pink on your way to work and “forgot to notice” the hearts and chocolates around the office: it’s Valentine’s Day!
In the startup world, we often have our heads down as we keep our noses to the grindstone, but sometimes it’s a good idea to look up and smell the roses. The Canadian tech community has come a long way in the last decade—CB Insights reports that approximately US$1.7 Billion was raised for 266 Canadian companies last year.
This success is the result of tireless effort from a variety of key people and initiatives put into place by government, entrepreneurs and venture financing. The team at Brightspark Ventures wanted to take a moment to recognize the incredible network of entrepreneurs and advisors who share in this accomplishment. After all, venture financing goes far beyond just capital; it’s a meaningful partnership between all parties involved, from investor to founder to end-user.
