More than a VC firm, more than investors, and more than partners. Above all, we’re builders, driven by purpose.

We elevate founders, companies and communities by mentoring, making connections and opening doors. By building together, we believe we can have a positive, lasting impact on the world.

Our Mission

We actively support founders to build global, sustainable tech companies.

We established Inovia on the premise that a top-tier Canada-headquartered VC was missing. The country was full of amazing talent but needed support to cultivate its potential rather than see it all exported to the US. What we envisioned back in 2007 remains unchanged and still drives everything we do today as Company Builders.

Since our inception, Inovia isn’t just about providing capital to companies; it’s about creating wealth: economic wealth, intellectual wealth, and financial wealth, and also supporting our ecosystem and our communities at every level, especially in our backyard.

Canadian Roots, Global Network

With access to a strong network of ecosystem partners, advisors and experts in North America and Europe, our firm offers everything it takes to support founders’ global ambitions.


Our team of investors and former operators provides founders with the experience and unique insight from having built enduring tech companies.

Operator-Led Mindset

We are company builders with an operator-led mindset creating value at all stages. Our team is eager to roll up their sleeves to support founders from seed to IPO and beyond.

Our Values

Trust, Humility, Respect, Integrity, Vulnerability, Empathy are core values that define who we are.

Here are five beliefs that guide our day-to-day actions:

Purpose-Led Growth

Seek consequential outcomes.


Drive impactful conversations & connections.


Set the bar high for DE&I.

Builder’s Mindset

Own it.


 Strive for excellence.
