Aviva Ventures is looking to make strategic investments into early-stage, high-growth potential businesses that will bring new opportunities, insight and value to our company. Aviva Canada is hosting an event called “Pitch Day”, where 10 Canadian-based businesses will be invited to our King St. W location to deliver a 15-minute pitch to a panel of Aviva advisors. After evaluating the pitches, our advisors will decide whether or not to make an investment. Aviva Ventures is looking to invest up to $10 million CAD for a maximum 20% stake in a good business idea.
We’re looking for Canadian-based digital startups with the potential to disrupt existing markets and the ability to scale rapidly. Your business should fit into one of our four investment categories. In order to qualify, your startup has to have raised $200,000 to date.
