Strategy

We support high-impact entrepreneurs by offering financial investments, experienced counsel, and access to networks to help enable the accelerated development of their ventures.

Our focus is primarily (though not exclusively) on early-stage technology companies in the Toronto-Waterloo Corridor, which is one of the most important tech hubs in the world today. In a recent report by global accounting firm PwC, Toronto was scored alongside 29 other key global cities.

Toronto was ranked 6th in the world for its "entrepreneurial environment". In terms of the percentage of the population with advanced degrees, we are ranked 4th. For "ease of starting a business" we are ranked number 2. Toronto also scored well on many of the other 50 or so categories. There has never been more of importance happening in the Toronto-Waterloo tech scene than today.

We are signatories of the United Nations Principals For Responsible Investment, an international network of investors working together to put the six Principles for Responsible Investment into practice. Its goal is to understand the implications of sustainability for investors and support signatories to incorporate these issues into their investment decision making and ownership practices.

If you are interested in investment from Freycinet, please consider:

• Have we already proven our business model by way of paying customers?
• Are we an established company looking to accelerate our growth?
• Are we harnessing technology for good - with a particular focus on food, clean water or human health?
• Are we open to new ideas and business approaches, as well as financial investment?
