Check out iNovia’s announcements this week: Bomoda, a Chineese fashion startup, Top Hat Monocle, a startup in education gamification, AppDirect, cloud computing for millions of SMBs, and 33Across, which is in social graph.
You can see more comments here to get context about those investments.
What I was interested though was to get the big picture. The following is the list of VC (Angel, VC and a few Equity) in Montreal. As you can see, iNovia leads the pack, in total $ investments, diversity of portfolio, total number of participants. Of course, they’ve been around longer than most VC funds, but the announcements have been very consistent over the years. Real Ventures, Rho Canada have been also very active in 2011 and 2012.
