Investments | RBC Ventures

Sometimes visionaries need champions to help them make their dreams a reality. RBC supports innovation and the development of transformational technologies through the direct investment in startup, early and growth-stage companies as well as indirectly through limited partnership fund investments.

RBC’s approach is to co-invest and partner with other venture capital firms as a minority investor in companies. But we don’t just supply growth capital. We also help entrepreneurs grow their businesses through commercial arrangements, which give our portfolio companies as well as limited partnership investments access to the immense resources and assets the bank and its affiliates have to offer.

We are primarily focused on investments in the fintech, AI, data analytics, commerce and payments, information security, enterprise IT, marketing and customer experience sectors.
