Entrepreneurs investing in Entrepreneurs.

YUL Ventures is a technology-focused growth advisory 
and venture capital firm investing in early stages 
of promising companies typically based in Montreal.

We are particularly active with internet-centric entrepreneurs 
that rely on platforms and marketplaces to create sustainable 
network effects and high-velocity go-to-market strategies.

WHAT WE DO

We invest in dynamic teams of entrepreneurs that have deep expertise in sizable markets they’re trying to disrupt, as well as shippable products having demonstrated an initial market traction and user acceptance.

We typically make minority investments in young companies enjoying early commercial momentum. 

Depending on the investment opportunity, YUL Ventures will use our own capital and sometimes involve our network of family offices and qualified private equity investors.  

Our investment strategy is to work with existing management teams to accelerate growth and enhance the value of a business by providing capital, marketing expertise, operating refinements and other resources that may not have previously been available

OUR TEAM

 

YUL Ventures was established to contribute to the entrepreneurial ecosystem of Quebec and to support the emerging generation of Quebec entrepreneurs.

The firm is led by a team of seasoned and well-connected entrepreneurs having successfully built dozens of tech businesses over past decades.
