Entrepreneurship is a mindset, an attitude and a life adopted by people not satisfied with the status quo. Based in Prince Edward County, Upper Canada Equity Fund is an early stage equity investment fund that co-invests in innovative enterprises. Unlike traditional venture capital firms that work towards an exit or the sale of a company to gain a return, Upper Canada Equity Fund deploys patient capital through a unique private-public investment model with the goal of building enterprises that boost rural economic diversification and contribute to sustainable development.
