An investment in the next generation of women entrepreneurs.
We extend sincere thanks to all champions and strategic partners that help make SheBoot possible.
We are honoured to collaborate with the following leaders to fuel the long-term growth and success of women founders:
- Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario) which contributes to SheBoot through the Scaleup Platform delivered by Invest Ottawa in Canada’s Capital and Eastern Ontario; and
- Mistral Venture Partners, a seed-stage venture capital firm with offices in Ottawa, Toronto, and California, that manages the special purpose investment vehicle established for SheBoot.
“Women entrepreneurs face unique and systemic challenges, which have been amplified by the COVID-19 crisis. Through SheBoot, led by Invest Ottawa and the Capital Angel Network and with support from FedDev Ontario, more women founders can access the expertise, networking and investment needed to grow their tech businesses. The Government of Canada is here to support women entrepreneurs and small businesses, and work together to build a stronger, better Canada for everyone.”
The Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Economic Development and Official Languages and Minister responsible for the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario
“We recognize that women-led companies frequently outperform the industry average, and we would love to invest in more. When we look at our deal-flow, however, the companies are predominantly led by men. We see SheBoot as a program that has the potential to radically change that and create much more visibility to women founders. We’re delighted to have found a way to support SheBoot and help it scale.”
Pablo Srugo, Principal, Mistral Venture Partners
