“Our guiding principle is that profit and progress go hand in hand.
Freycinet Ventures invests in early- and mid-stage companies, particularly in the Toronto-Waterloo corridor, with a focus on technologies that advance human progress. We work with companies that already have a small team, a viable product or service, and paying customers, and help take them to the top of their game.
What does “technology for human progress” mean?
This phrase forms the backbone of our investment approach. It means that we back products and services that are focused on better outcomes for the people who use them – whether that’s improved efficiency, productivity, health, economic benefits, or social and environmental impacts. Our guiding principle is that profit and progress can go hand in hand. If your business has the capacity for tremendous commercial success, coupled with above average impact in your field, we want to hear from you.
What sets Freycinet apart from other venture investors?
Freycinet goes beyond a simple injection of financing to provide the tools for success: coaching, mentorship, and real-time advice from an experienced entrepreneur and accredited investor. We offer guidance on product evolution, marketing, and business development. And, we follow our portfolio companies closely through their growth, with the capacity to make follow-on investments in subsequent financing rounds.
The Toronto-Waterloo region is the second largest tech cluster in North America, and emerging as a world-leading tech and innovation corridor. Simply put, Toronto-Waterloo is on the rise, and Freycinet has positioned itself in the centre of the action.
