Finding the right investor is a critical step for a high-growth technology company. We chose Accelerate Fund because of their reputation, their strong network, and the chemistry we felt with the team.

Wesley Sessenwein CEO and Founder, PayShepherd

It was important to us to have strong relationships and alignment with local investors who believe in what we’re doing. Accelerate Fund led our pre-seed round and helped attract other angels wanting to invest in us.

Lana Cuthbertson CEO and Founder of Areto Labs

With their deep industry knowledge and guidance in supporting our team, Accelerate Fund III is the right-fit investor for us as we strive to build Alberta’s next unicorn.

Omer Choudhary CEO and Founder, Truffle

Some of the greatest value we get from the Accelerate Fund team is the “sanity checks.” Lots of successful investors in Alberta have a history in energy, fewer have done it in technology. The Accelerate Fund team provides immediate, experienced perspective.
