For Investors

GreenSky is a multi-faceted group of financial services companies focused on finding the most promising early-stage technology companies and providing them with the capital, knowledge, and networks to help them succeed.

Funds

GreenSky Capital is an Ontario registered Exempt Market Dealer (EMD) which sees over 450 potential investees per annum. We take an institutional approach to early stage investing, with deep due diligence up-front, a team of over thirty technical advisors, ongoing board involvement and other advisory work to stay connected with investments and help keep them on course. We see our funds as a substitute or compliment to angel investing.

Investment Opportunity

The GreenSky Accelerator Fund was set up in response to a Funding Gap that represents an opportunity for early stage tech financing.

Canadian companies can typically access early-stage (Pre-Seed) friends and family capital (<$250K) and later institutional round capital ($2M+), but struggle to raise financing in between those stages and the quantum necessary to fund real growth. The GreenSky Accelerator Funds invests up to 500,000 in early stage technology companies. GreenSky Capital, through its affiliated Angel Group, the GreenSky President’s Club, and through its extended network of institutional and high net worth investors, can supplement the Funds’ investments, making seven figure fundings a reality for Late Seed stage, or extraordinarily promising Seed Stage companies.

We have experience in IT, CleanTech, SaaS, and MedTech and look for companies operating in large or accessible markets.

The fund also will retain capital for follow-on investments in companies which are succeeding at meeting milestones and require additional financing to fuel their growth. We seek investment partners who can do the same. GreenSky Capital has experience guiding companies through Series A and B rounds, allowing entrepreneurs and their teams to focus on their businesses

Angel Group

The GreenSky President’s Club (“GPC”) is an angel network designed to provide serious early stage investors with better quality deal flow, preferential pricing and increased probability of a successful exit through experienced, professional management.

GPC is not a fund, but a quantifiable and real commitment from a select group to participate, both financially, and potentially as mentors, in deals that are sourced, vetted and managed by GreenSky Capital. GPC members may invest in early stage opportunities alongside The GreenSky Accelerator Fund.

There are no management fees and members will have the right to direct their funds into the deals of their choice. Membership is limited and by invitation only. For more information, please contact Greg Stewart.
