Still No Funding From the Space Agency? Check Out These Options

          By Henry Stewart

Looking for a listing of 100+ firms which provide support and capital to Canadian technology entrepreneurs? Then check out this incredible group of mostly Canadian based incubators, accelerators, angel, seed, series A and series B investors from Maple Leaf Start-ups.

May 8th, 2018 screenshot from the Maple Leaf Start-Ups Home page showing sixteen of the 100+ organizations the firm tracks.

Each listing contains a firm overview, a link to the website, the firm portfolio (the small businesses it has funded or is planning to fund) and a listing of the principals involved with the project.

As outlined in the March 31st, 2014 Marc Evans consulting post, "Canadian Startup Financing Landscape (2014)" the listing derived from an earlier info-graphic, but has been updated and improved.

While the list favors software and biosciences funding, it also contains essential background for anyone looking for an entry into the world of venture capital, even if all you really want to do is build a better rocket ship.

This list, along with the The Canadian Venture Capital & Private Equity Association (CVCA) listing of its 250 strong member directory, is "essential background reading" for the 21st Century Canadian entrepreneur. Enjoy.
