Early-stage venture capital serving the top founders of Western Canada

Early-stage venture capital serving the top founders of Western Canada

There is more to choosing an investor than selecting the term sheet with the highest valuation. Strategic capital, in its true form, extends the founding team's capacity. That's what we do at Rhino Ventures. We invest in companies where we can add tangible value.

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR:

1. Businesses we understand: we invest in companies where we can add tangible value: identifying logical partners, talent acquisition, scaling/growth strategies, etc

2. Revenue generating: near term or in revenue businesses that have low burn rates and are focused on building a solid cash-flow company

3. Staying power: we look for companies that have a durable competitive advantage - we shy away from the proverbial "land grab" as the only source of differentiation

4. Founder First: 99% of founders don't have what it takes, we look for "storm-chasers" who can solve hard problems with the least amount of work - it takes one to know one.
