Unveiled at Invest Canada '18: CVCA Intelligence

The next generation of Canadian private equity and venture capital industry research has arrived.

Last week at Invest Canada ‘18, we were pleased to unveil CVCA Intelligence. The new data portal that will be replacing InfoBase and providing CVCA members with improved functionality, analytics and enhanced security.

Powered by Hockeystick, CVCA Intelligence will provide a complete look at Canada’s private equity and venture capital landscape, including fundraising, investments, exits and other relevant metrics. CVCA members will use the platform to report data, access proprietary investment data, and use data-driven benchmarks to improve returns.

With data from CVCA Intelligence, the CVCA will produce their quarterly VC & PE Canadian Market Overview, detailing investment activity in the entrepreneurial ecosystem.


CVCA Intelligence“With CVCA Intelligence, we are now in a position to provide our members with an expanded menu of benefits, but we are also in a much stronger position to better incorporate the use of standardized data in our advocacy efforts. Hockeystick has years of experience collecting data about Canada’s innovation economy and is the only platform where our members will own their own data. This platform brings together CVCA’s vast knowledge of VC and PE firms with Hockeystick’s leading-edge technology.”

- Darrell Pinto, Director of Research at the CVCA


As the voice of Canada’s venture capital and private equity industry, the CVCA’s primary mission is to advocate for policies to strengthen the growth and innovation ecosystems. Core to that mission is making timely and accurate data on the country’s private equity and venture capital investment activity available to CVCA’s stakeholders.

Hockeystick’s Founder and CEO, Raymond Luk, and the CVCA’s Director of Research, Darrell Pinto, unveiled CVCA Intelligence during a GP-only event on day one of the conference. For more details about this new software, we encourage you to review their presentation.



We also offered an interactive lab for CVCA Intelligence at the conference that was proudly sponsored by Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP. Check out some of the booth's highlights below.
