Our team is dedicated to building a strong network of key ecosystem players in Quebec, the rest of Canada, and across North America.

To leverage our strong presence in Quebec

Quebec has a well-established and growing VC industry. With our close ties to key stakeholders, we’re the perfect gateway to that ecosystem—one that will allow you to maximize your impact.

Our access to the best opportunities in Quebec’s VC market allows us to invest in companies with strong potential for growth. And we’re always looking to collaborate with co-investors to better support innovative projects.

To benefit from the knowledge and expertise of our angel co-investors

AQC Capital is the only venture capital firm in Quebec that invests ALL funds jointly with angel investors. These influential and experienced business people hail from all four corners of the province and are there to spark and develop ideas with promising startups and help them expand their markets.

When AQC sees an opportunity, the team assesses it in collaboration with angel investors who have expertise and extensive contacts in the target industry. This allows us to move quickly, helping entrepreneurs and their teams accelerate their growth as soon as their proof of concept and growth model gets the thumbs up from clients.

To access our expertise, process, and experience

Each AQC partner brings over 30 years of experience in business financing and development to the table and works actively with our team to invest in new ventures and track the businesses in our portfolio.

We’re proud to be one of the most active funds in Quebec. Since the launch of AQC II in June 2021, we have invested in more than 15 new businesses and made 40 reinvestments within both funds. Teaming up with us gives you the opportunity to connect with high-potential Quebec companies that have successfully passed our rigorous due diligence process.

We walked through our vision and both AQC Capital and Anges Quebec just plain got it. They recognized that our platform makes the delivery experience as easy as flipping a switch which empowers our merchants to expand their customer reach. Their investment and knowhow is absolutely elemental for our business – both technically as well as our future expansion into the Province of Quebec.

AQC Capital has been an invaluable partner for Puzzle Medical as we develop our artificial heart for patients with advanced heart failure. Their expertise in the healthcare industry and extensive network of resources have provided us with unparalleled support and guidance. Their commitment to our success is evident in their ongoing investment in our team, helping us advance our technology and bring this life-saving solution to those who need it most. We are grateful for their partnership and look forward to continuing to work together to transform patient care.

Since 2018, we've been privileged to work with AQC Capital. Their continued financial support through our last 3 funding rounds, in addition to their business growth support, has been critical to our success so far.

They have used their network to our advantage, connecting us with the right people and helping us develop our strategy. Developing a relationship like this over the years is key, as it allows us to work as a team through the highs and the lows, while being able to deploy much larger investments.

AQC Capital's focus on entrepreneurs will certainly help Quebec's startups grow and contribute to the economy of the province, while at the same time supporting sustainability and impact solutions that will benefit the environment and society as a whole.

We are actively seeking to broaden our network of collaborators. We’re interested in early-stage partners who can co-invest with us and build strong foundations for our companies. And we’re also looking for late-stage investors ready to take up the torch, as some of our portfolio companies have reached the level of maturity required to move on to the next step.

We maintain close relationships with recognized investors from diverse geographies and stages, including:
Pre-seed and seed co-investors
Scale-up and growth-stage investors
