The study was designed to provide a high-level profile of a small number of foreign VC investors, including both those that do and do not invest in Canada, and of Canadian firms financed by foreign and domestic VC funding, so as to contribute to the development of an understanding of the types of factors influencing foreign VC investment in Canada and the advantages and disadvantages associated with foreign, relative to domestic, VC financing.
