Innovate BC, InBC Investment Corp, PacifiCan and New Ventures BC have partnered to launch a new online platform that provides a comprehensive and dynamic view of British Columbia’s capital and business landscape.
Available now, Capital Compass BC offers centralized intelligence on startups, scaleups, investors, entrepreneurial resources, and investment capital flow within the province.
In addition to supporting companies in navigating funding sources and enhancing their visibility, investors and funding providers can utilize the platform to identify companies from across B.C. that best align with their investment thesis.
Capital Compass BC allows users to explore its expansive database with filters for sector, company stage, funding round, and other key characteristics, as well as view trends, opportunities and gaps that exist within the region and in the innovation ecosystem.
“While British Columbia continues to thrive and lead across many sectors, companies in our province will benefit from enhanced knowledge of available capital, resulting in stronger global partnerships and growth potential for B.C.,” said Tomica Divic, Interim President + CEO at Innovate BC.
“Through Capital Compass BC, we hope that business and investment entities working within our region will be better equipped to effectively find and access local funding sources and investment opportunities to support their development.”
Publicly available and free-to-use, Capital Compass BC will allow entrepreneurs, innovators, investors, and ecosystem enablers to submit relevant information to be featured and searchable within the platform.
