In this third edition of our report, we aim to reiterate our enthusiasm for the Canadian Tech and Venture Capital ecosystem as well as touch upon a few new topics.

In addition to sharing our excitement about Canada and expressing our belief that the ecosystem is stronger than ever, we examine larger round dynamics, the continuation of the VCCI program, the rise of narwhals, and funding activity by state and region. We have also explored one of Canada's key strengths: its diversity and increased immigration influx. Finally, we end with an updated deep dive on VCs and other investors.

White Star Capital Canadian Venture Capital Landscape 2019

  1. 1. Canadian Venture Capital Landscape 2019 From the eyes of an International Investor
  2. 2. Jean-Francois Marcoux Managing Partner WHITE STAR CAPITAL Christophe Bourque General Partner WHITE STAR CAPITAL Julie Plouffe CFO WHITE STAR CAPITAL White Star Capital 2 White Star Capital has been an active investor in the Canadian venture capital market since 2007, leading financing rounds resulting in success stories including Ludia (exited), Mnubo (exited), Drop Loyalty, Dialogue, Vention, and Borrowell. We continue to be amazed by the talent and the execution capabilities of Canadian entrepreneurs. We are proud to continue investing in Canadian startups and to be an important and differentiated partner for entrepreneurs to help them scale internationally. The next decade is exciting with companies scaling up and maturing in sectors such as AI/IoT, Digital Health, Industrial automation, Robotics and Fintech. We look forward to continue to be an active contributor in this fast-growing ecosystem." 2019 is looking like it will be another record year for Canadian VC on all fronts. If this momentum keeps up, it is exciting to think about what the future will look like. Canadian cities such as Montreal and Toronto will go from simply being on the map to becoming world leading tech hubs. Given the high level of seed stage investment over the last 2 years, I would say we are still 5 to 7 years away from that happening. In the meantime, Canada is already a leader in terms of the diversity of our tech ecosystem. Let’s keep it up! I look forward to continuing to be an active and supportive contributor." I am always amazed to see how the Canadian venture capital market has evolved over the last decade. As you can read in this report, all elements are now combined for Canada to be positioned as a top tier technology hub, with access to great talent, a strong level of investing activities, as well as government programs and larger financing rounds to support the growth aspiration of our companies. All that with a key differentiator of having a highly collaborative ecosystem amongst all players. As an international investor, we take great pride of enabling our Canadian entrepreneurs to succeed locally, but also to shine globally. Well done Canada, the future is very promising!" "I'm proud to see the 3rd edition of this report come to light, personally it has been incredible to see how interest from around the world has grown for Canada's VC ecosystem since our first report and it continues to be a pleasure to cover the topics that get us excited about Canada." "With an important influx of foreign talent as well as startups raising faster and bigger rounds, Canada is increasingly mature and on track to become one of the leading VC regions in the world." Sanjay Zimmermann Senior Associate Alexandre Witkowicz Analyst

However, 2019 surpasses the peak years of 2017 and 2018, with YTD VC funding being at $4.7bn. We continue to notice an increase in capital in larger rounds. In fact, the British-Columbia startup Clio raised the most important financing round of these last 10 years (C$333m). Additional details throughout the report will allow to see this decrease in deal volume but this increase in deal amount especially in specific sectors such as Artificial Intelligence and Fintech. $1.9B $2.1B $2.3B $3.2B $3.8B $3.8B $4.7B 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018 2019YTD¹ VC funding continues to grow Total funding allocated to top 10 deals 34% 35% 23% 31% 40% 30% 30% 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018 2019 YTD $ 0m $ 2m $ 4m $ 6m $ 8m $ 10m 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 20182019YTD Average Deal ($m) Median Deal Value ($m) Canada Venture Capital: Overview ¹ ¹
  8. 8. White Star Capital 8 Source: CBInsights ¹YTD refers to November 15th 2019 Seed funding still leading the way While Series A and later stage investments increase their share of total deals in Canada, % of VC-backed exits remains unchanged Given the relatively small size average investment size and high failure rate of seed deals vs. A+, seed deals should represent a high % of total deals in any healthy VC ecosystem. As the Canadian market has continued to mature over the last 10 years, we’ve seen this phenomenon occur in recent years. However, over that same period, the proportion of VC-backed exits in Canada has remained relatively unchanged. Although the foundation has been laid by an increasingly healthy seed stage investment environment, this has not yet translated in greater outcomes in disproportion to the overall market. 0% 10% 20% 30% 40% 50% 60% 70% 80% 90% 100% 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018 2019YTD Seed Series A Series B Series C Series D+ Number of Seed deals continue to grow Canada Venture Capital: Overview

With continued investment in the early stage and growth in the total amount of VC invested, we expect Canada to catchup with its peers over the coming years. Canada Venture Capital: Overview

Given that Canada produces a few number of Unicorns (Kik and Shopify in 2015, and Lightspeed POS and Coveo this year), the term “narwhal” is now used to define Canadian companies on track to become Unicorns in the near future. Compared to 2018, the number of firms on track to become Unicorns almost doubled.
