Feds tab Cycle Capital, 2 others to disperse VCCI money


Montreal’s Cycle Capital is one of three Canadian cleantech funds who will control $50 million in federal funding under the Venture Capital Catalyst Initiative (VCCI).

Renewal4 and ArcTern Ventures II are the other two funds taking part.

“Canada is a world leader in clean technology. Our government is investing $50 million in critical venture capital to help Canada’s best businesses working in clean technology scale into innovative global champions, said Mary Ng, Minister of Small Business and Export Promotion. “This investment complements our government’s historic $2.3 billion investment in clean technology and will further support our rapidly growing venture capital ecosystem.”

Canada’s venture capital industry has nearly doubled in size since 2010. To build on this success, the Government of Canada has invested $400 million, through the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC), in the VCCI.

The VCCI is a mandate managed by BDC Capital. Like Minster Ng noted, the $50 million will be in addition to previously announced $2.3 billion investment in Canadian clean technology.

Each venture capital fund that receives investment under VCCI is required to have a gender strategy to promote women and diversity in venture capital.

    Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some
    advice from an established blog. Is it hard to set up your own blog?
    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.

    I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to
    start. Do you have any points or suggestions? Many thanks

    First of all I would like to say great blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like
    to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I have had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how
    to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Thank you!

    Hello there! This post couldn’t be written much better!
    Reading through this article reminds me of my previous roommate!

    He continually kept preaching about this.
    I’ll forward this article to him. Fairly certain he’s going to have a very good read.
    Thank you for sharing!
