Hardware and Enterprise Software Solutions take centre stage in our 2020 accomplishments.

2020 was an unprecedented year. Now more than ever, ventureLAB remains deeply committed to our mission to grow globally competitive tech titans that build to scale — from Canada, for global markets.

Navigating complex challenges is the very nature of building a company. Our organization is led by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs. We’re proud to have first-hand experience of the tech founder’s journey and what it takes to commercialize game-changing solutions. Since 2011, our growth-oriented initiatives focused on attracting talent, creating IP, raising investment capital, and acquiring customers and strategic partners to generate revenue, have enabled thousands of companies to create over 4,000 new jobs and raise $200M+ in investment capital.

Thank you to our partners, companies, and community. We are driven by our culture: We are Relentless, Innovative, Visionary, Inclusive, and Results-Oriented. This year has reinforced that success is not just a metric but a mindset; success is sustainability, growth, and perseverance. True resilience isn’t born individually but in the resources and strength of our communities.

Inside ventureLAB’s 2020 Annual Review, you’ll find highlights from the past year, including:

  • How we enabled scaling tech companies to create over 140 new jobs and raise $37M+ in investment capital
  • Our pillars for building globally competitive tech titans that build-to-scale in Canada
  • How top Growth and Scale companies in our community showcased their success through the year
  • Our impact through signature programs like the Hardware Catalyst Initiative and Tech Undivided

This past year was like no other. In 2021, we are excited to see our founders continue to scale their companies with life-changing solutions that will transform our local and global communities. With a culture of innovation and relentlessness, we’re championing our vibrant community of innovators, industry leaders, partners and founders with a forward-focus on hardware and enterprise software solutions.
