Real is a leading source of capital for game-changing entrepreneurs, and a driving force behind emerging tech ecosystems.

In 2007, we questioned why brilliant Canadian founders should have to jump on a flight to SF to raise seed capital. We also believed that VCs should play a role in accelerating the creation of world-class tech ecosystems by providing support beyond the companies for whom they wrote cheques, so we rolled up our sleeves and built projects that served founders’ needs. Fast-forward 10 years, and Real has invested in over 200 companies; grown a network of 1000+ founders; raised over $300M across 5 early-stage funds; witnessed Canada’s transformation into the home of multiple top-20 global tech hubs; and seen the Valley’s best VCs jumping on flights from SF & NY to Canada to back industry-defining companies.
