A new online platform to help entrepreneurs looking for investment capital.
We are pleased to announce the launch of the investor directory, a unique platform compiling over 240 investors who are active in the Québec market.
This platform is a collaboration between the Centre of expertise of Réseau Capital and the Ministère de l’Économie, de l’Innovation et de l’Énergie.
The goal of this online directory is to present a wide range of potential investors to help entrepreneurs who want to grow their companies through investment regardless of their development stage.
Entrepreneurs can turn to this database to search through over 240 venture-capital and development-capital investors, over 100 of which are based in Québec.
Connecting more easily with investors
This directory is above all a practical tool for entrepreneurs who are looking for investment capital.
“Réseau Capital’s Centre of expertise has been working for many months on this investor directory of funders that are active in Québec. We are very proud to offer this new platform that will make it easier for local entrepreneurs to connect with investment capital funders. Being able to easily consult information about potential investors is an essential need for entrepreneurs. With the investor directory, information about 240 investors in the Québec market is just a click away,” said Simon Pelletier, Director Business Intelligence at Réseau Capital.
