Founded in 2019, Conexus Venture Capital was built to fill a funding gap in the local tech ecosystem. In 2017, Saskatchewan startups received less than half a percent of all venture capital funds deployed across Canada. Knowing our province’s startups were being overlooked we sought out ways to fill this funding gap. In early 2019, Conexus Credit Union launched Conexus Venture Capital as a commitment to supporting Saskatchewan entrepreneurs and the economy! Since then, Conexus Venture Capital has played a key role in growing the venture capital eco-system in Saskatchewan and and beyond – and we’ve only just gotten started!

Recognizing the lack of venture capital funding as an opportunity to solve a significant problem for our province’s entrepreneurs!
We currently manage and operate two funds:
