Canadian Global Growth Program™

The mission of the Canadian Global Growth Program™ is to propel Canadian technology ventures into global markets. 

Since 2012, Hurt Capital has researched avenues for enhancing the technology startup ecosystem in Canada. Its work in this field strives to contribute to Canada’s economic prosperity and competitiveness as a jurisdiction of choice for entrepreneurial activity, capital investment, and technological innovation.

Hurt Capital leverages over 600 professionals and partners in 14 offices through strategic relationships with globally integrated technology companies. The company engages in two core business activities: Capital Investment and Venture Capital. These activities are synergistic due to, among other attributes, domain expertise in founder-oriented ownership structures and consumer-oriented technology – alongside an exceptionally long-term entrepreneurial mindset. Hurt Capital's track record is in identifying world-class companies, investing during periods of uncertainty, and holding for the long term.
