The $205 million Ontario Venture Capital Fund (OVCF) is a joint initiative between the Government of Ontario and leading institutional investors to invest primarily in Ontario-based and Ontario-focused venture capital and growth equity funds that support innovative, high growth companies.

The OVCF was designed to foster innovation and investment in Ontario by enhancing long-term investment returns and contributing to the creation of a globally competitive and self-sustaining ventures capital industry.

Through its disciplined focus on generating top-tier returns and fostering the development of best-in-class fund managers, the OVCF serves as an important catalyst in ongoing efforts to create a profitable, globally competitive and self-sustaining venture capital industry in Ontario. The OVCF is managed by Northleaf Capital.

As one of our earliest partners, Venture Ontario have played a foundational role in our funds. The support they have provided to Georgian Partners has been instrumental in helping us to where we are today including enabling us to invest in great companies like Shopify, Top Hat,, Freshbooks and many others.
