The Innovation Economy is the wealth-generation engine of our future. Our mission at PV is to shift part of the mountain of capital from old-economy industries into tech. By connecting great entrepreneurs with investors and deploying capital into high-potential growth-stage investments, we seek to maximize value for both operators and investors.
Our philosophy is defined by
We encourage portfolio company leadership to connect with our world-class roster of LPs for strategic guidance and networking opportunities. Our esteemed investors get to participate in investment opportunities to which they would otherwise not be exposed. Everybody wins.
We do not charge % AUM management fees; we only generate wealth for PV when our companies create positive outcomes. Our investment strategies are highly concentrated, which means that all exits are meaningful to us. We don’t pressure on company leadership to seek $1B valuations. All of this creates a natural alignment with our entrepreneurs and investors.
Our investment criteria are shared openly for everyone to review. Operating budgets are published to LPs. New investors are welcome to look at deal flow before coming on board. Our model delivers unparalleled transparency.
We are community-oriented and believe that successful outcomes are encouraged by compassion, empathy, and a personal touch. We don’t get rich from fees, so every action or piece of advice comes from alignment, not conflicting objectives. Our general partners are eager to contribute their time and expertise to help each portfolio company scale and flourish.
Our fund structure
Strategies driven by opportunities
PV is focused on deploying capital into the technology sector. With a range of diversified offerings and unique fund structure, we allow global institutions, family offices and UHNW to access the innovation economy in a transparent, aligned and open platform.
Our Canada Growth Funds invest at Series A or B in scaling companies at a “moment in time” defined by the need for capital to hire up to support proven demand, and often in an “off-market” financing that seeks to fund the achievement of a business milestone that will facilitate a next major financing at a valuation premium. Learn more.
Our Direct Secondary Funds are the first of their kind in Canada, seeking later-stage, high-growth companies with near-term value creation events such as acquisitions, large growth financings, or IPOs. PV finds early investor share positions to provide liquidity for angels and ex-employees and improve company structure for the path forward. Learn more.
We support growing companies
Dynamic investor network
We have an amazing LP community of successful executives, business owners, and institutional investors ready to share their time, advice and connections.
We foster serendipitous relationships for our entrepreneurs through deep ecosystem involvement and strategic connections to customers, financers, service providers, channel partners and acquirers.
Focus and care from PV partners
A limited number of investments per fund enables significant partner-level time and attention for each portfolio company.
Alignment of interests
We don’t get rich from fees and we don’t need unicorns to be successful. When the time is right for the entrepreneur, the time is right for us.
Opportunity for follow-on capital
Portfolio companies receive additional rounds of funding from us as they mature and grow.
