Managing Director (Toronto)
Michelle joined the venture world when she was seconded (having no idea what that meant at the time) to an early-stage fund. She found the people she loves collaborating with and launched StandUp to make sure she could do it every day. She's happiest hanging with her family or swimming in the ocean with all of the beautiful fish.
Lucas has spent his career supporting and investing in early stage companies in Canada and in East Africa. He’s a CPA, and is a sucker for some good SaaS metrics. Lucas is a die hard Montreal Canadiens fan, but currently resides in enemy territory (Toronto).
A Venture for Canada alumni and Director of their angel investments program, Katheleen has a background in neuroscience and building venture-backed startups. She is deeply passionate about enabling more equitable access to entrepreneurship, and can be found either planning ski trips as Canadian Women in VC Montreal's Chapter Lead, or wearing Patagonia on Zoom somewhere in South America.
Venture Partner (Kelowna)
Jess uses a cornucopia of experience from the business world (from McKinsey consultant to SaaS operator to social enterprise founder) to help companies be both profitable and socially good. Her happy place is either cooking a big meal or being with her wonderful partner and toddler. She's also got a pretty cool blog - Rule Breaker.
Marketing Intern (Toronto)
Taylor is currently studying Marketing at McMaster University and is enthusiastic about the world of marketing and all the creative possibilities it offers. Taylor dreams of owning and running her own business one day. She is an amateur bodybuilder, and you can usually find her in the gym or meal-prepping at home. She also enjoys reading and writing about philosophy.
