Announcing The Launch Of Information Venture Partners Fund I
Today, we are excited to announce the launch of Information Venture Partners Fund I.
With the support of leading North American institutional investors we have transitioned our business from being the captive venture capital arm of Royal Bank of Canada, one of North America’s leading financial institutions to a new, independent venture capital fund platform.
Information VP began 13 years ago as RBC Venture Partners. As partners we have worked together for over a decade and combine our experiences and networks to maximize the value we bring to our portfolio companies.
Since inception our inaugural and subsequent funds have positioned us as the leading “go-to” team in North American markets for early-stage enterprise SaaS and FinTech investments. Our existing portfolio includes market-leading innovators like Adaptive Insights, Verafin, Brickstream, and IGLOO Software.
As a firm we are proud with the success of our portfolio companies, entrepreneurs and the company we keep. Prior portfolio companies have successfully exited to IBM, Oracle, BlackBerry, VMWare and other leading firms. Our syndicate partners include firms like Bessemer, NorWest, Spectrum Equity, FTV Capital, Spark, DFJ and Flybridge.
Information VP is actively raising our 2nd independent fund and look forward to backing the next generation of entrepreneurs and leading SaaS enterprises in 2015 and beyond.
