Brightspark is one of Canada’s top-performing venture capital firms, actively investing in exceptional entrepreneurs since 1999. It provides growth capital and expertise to market-transforming Canadian tech companies in seed to growth stages. It is one of the only VC firms in Canada to provide access for individual accredited investors to invest in the VC asset class alongside it.
Comments on Funding:
Every time Brightspark invests in a new company, we create a single purpose Limited Partnership fund. Accredited investors in our network can invest in the fund, which in turn invests in the target company.
After the investment, Brightspark takes on the role of Managing Partner in the company-specific fund.
In return for its investment, Brightspark will own securities (usually preferred shares) of the company.
When there is a liquidity event (the company is sold or has an IPO), the fund receives the proceeds of the exit, which is calculated based on its ownership in the company at that time
