Conexus Venture Capital Fund #1 is a 2019 vintage fund that invests in a diversified portfolio of high growth tech startups with a focus on companies operating in the Canadian prairies. We raised $32 million in 2019 and are no longer making new investments through this fund.

Why we got started?

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 for funding, we sought out ways we could fill this funding gap. In early 2019, we launched the Conexus Venture Capital Fund #1 as a commitment to supporting Saskatchewan entrepreneurs and the economy.

Our approach

Fund #1 aims to bring together a variety of partners and investors eager to build Saskatchewan’s entrepreneurial ecosystem, and invests in high-growth, prairie-based tech startups.

Fund investors

Fund #1 investors are entirely from Saskatchewan and represent a strong mix of credit unions, individual business leaders, and a Saskatchewan-based retail venture capital fund with approximately 28,000 Saskatchewan-based shareholders.  

Who we’re looking to invest in

Like most venture capital funds, we’ve invested all available funds into our portfolio companies. We are unable to invest in any new opportunities through this fund.
