Real Ventures

Real is an early-stage venture capital firm that backs entrepreneurs and builds the ecosystems in which they thrive.

We back world-class entrepreneurs building game-changing companies, connecting them to local and national ecosystems and helping guide them through their next stages of evolution. The firm invests throughout the life-cycle of early-stage companies and provides stage-appropriate capital and support for the founders it backs. Real believes that VCs should play a role in accelerating the creation of world-class tech ecosystems by providing support beyond the companies for whom it writes cheques. It’s this collaborative mindset that inspires Real to launch initiatives that lay, or build upon, the foundations of rapidly growing tech hubs in Canada, and wherever else the firm may go.

Founders:  Alan MacIntosh, Jean-Sebastian Cournoyer, John Stokes
