StandUp Ventures is a seed stage fund focused on investing in high growth technology ventures. StandUp is led by a team of experienced investors who have assembled a diverse advisory committee. The advisory committee is comprised of successful founders, venture investors and other strategic mentors who will provide high touch support to the entrepreneurs. StandUp Ventures catalyzes strong deal flow across Canada from our network and syndicate seed rounds with Angels and US VCs.
We believe that diverse teams make strong business sense and there is a gap in the marketplace that we are uniquely positioned to address.
Our decision to create StandUp Ventures Fund was quickly greeted with strong interest. We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with BDC to address this gap while increasing access to capital for women-led businesses which remain proportionately underfunded.
