MISSION

TG Ventures invests pre-seed and seed stages of technology companies with high growth potential.

Beyond funding, we help our portfolio companies with: Product & Go2Market Strategies, Business & Financial Modeling, Operational Structure and Distribution Network all in order to protect our investment and propel them to the next level.

INNOVATION…  the quest of know-how

Beyond technical success,

most technology startups fail... WHY ?

  • Misalignment of product and market needs

  • Product complexity and cost

  • Inexperienced management team

  • The many challenges involved in turning a technical project into a viable company

  • Inability to seize the right opportunities

  • Challenges involved in raising appropriate financing

THE PROBLEM

  • The Montreal (and Canadian) entrepreneurial and IT market is booming.

  • The limited support system seldomly brings entrepreneurs to venture capital firms.

  • Most VC funds target “proven” ideas (Series A and B) and Start-ups in the seed stage have very limited financing options.

  • There is a disconnect between the need for strategic/monetary support and the resources available to startups such professionals, incubators, etc.

KEYS TO SUCCESS

  • TG Ventures boasts strong fundamentals in the realm of seed funding:

  • Extensive experience in managing technology companies, from conception to exit, by managing the growth aspect

  • In depth market knowledge allows to select the best possible opportunities

  • Speed and accuracy of execution, from due diligence all the way to supporting the exit process.

  • Constant and close mentorship of Start-Ups

An unrivaled collection of experience in operational management and product growth for technology companies.

  • Our investments will be disbursed based on achieving specific milestones, as per our “ Invest As We Go ” strategy (next page)

  • We will mostly obtain EQUITY stakes in the Startups we invest in. Our investments will be based not only on an evaluation of the current valuation but also on the potential of the opportunity as well as our ability to help  take it to fruition.

Our approach is optimized and personal

  • Strategic Mentorship

  • Milestones definition and validation

  • Funding triggered by milestones

  • Openness of our Vast Network of contacts

  • Periodic and frequent meetings between the Startups and the GPs that go beyond board meetings
