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.


AQC Capital is truly a committed VC. You can really sense, both in their words and in their actions, that they have the company's success at heart, both in terms of its international reach, and its local reach.

Alexis C. Steinman

At the start of the company, I was well trained in drug development, but these were my first rounds of investment.

Their guidance and our interactions allowed me to ask questions that were important to me, and to better understand the dynamics of corporate finance.

François Ravenelle
CEO and founder of Inversago

For me, it was truly a period of challenge. They "challenged" me on my business model, allowed me to go further in my strategic analysis, and they still allow me to do so today.

Marie-Hélène David
CEO and founder of Myni

The members of the AQC Capital team were good ambassadors and representatives of the company, supporting us in preparing for the rounds and making it clear to the other investors who we really were. It really helped us close our final rounds.

Dragan Tutic
CEO and founder of Oneka Technologies

They helped me really understand the other side of the coin or how corporate investors think... It helped me better negotiate certain terms with future investors, which worked in our favor in many ways.

Simon Bédard
CEO and co-founder of Clinia
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.
Jade Doucet-Martineau
Co-founder and CEO of Puzzle Medical Devices

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
