We are incredibly proud to showcase Techstars Toronto’s most global class to date. Moreover, we have selected a batch of companies where more than 95% of the teams are entrepreneurs who are BIPOC and women (!!) Want more? These 12 companies have a combined value already in excess of $150 million (unheard of during an accelerator), and they are just getting started!
Techstars Toronto has once again leveraged the efficiencies of operating our accelerator virtually; increasing the international footprint of our investments by sourcing globally including Pakistan, India, Nigeria, Rwanda, Kenya, The United Kingdom, Vietnam, Ukraine, and the United States. Many of these companies are now fully incorporated in Canada or the US (and some in other investor-friendly jurisdictions) and many immigration applications are well underway. We will be welcoming them to Canada soon.
Canada is using its exceptional country brand to the fullest.
We pick great companies, and Techstars Toronto has been on a roll. Several exits have been realized (including Inkblot Therapy (Green Shield Insurance), Doorr (Finastra), Flow (Khoros), Gini Health (Finvasia) and a few more will soon be announced. Moreover, companies in the Techstars Toronto have exceeded $1 billion in combined value led by investments such as Quidax, Korapay, Balance, Kitchenmate, Cinchy, Tread, CarScanner, TalentQL, Artboard, Fable, Mayday, Orbiseed, Babbly, LumiereVR, Senso, Mine’d, Treepz and many more.
