About Us

Relay Ventures is an early-stage venture capital fund focused on industries with the potential for growth, fueled by the rapid adoption of technology. Our team is what makes us, and we take pride in the diversity of professional and academic experiences our team offers. Our offices can be found in Toronto, Calgary and San Francisco, but you can find our wide network of portfolio companies spread all across North America. As a group, we got our start back in 2008. Since then, we’ve been giving driven founders theirs.

Meet The Team

Our Strategy

At Relay we focus in on four verticals that we believe technology will have an outsized impact on, and invest in entrepreneurs rethinking these industries. We partner with founders at the Seed and Series A stage, and provide support through the entire life cycle of the business.

Mobility

AI-powered software and hardware systems for autonomy, robotics and mobility that assist humans in every aspect of their lives.

Proptech

Emerging technologies that impact the real estate value chain and enable new business models to augment how we build, buy, manage and experience our built environment.

Fintech

Digitally-forward solutions that reimagine the way money flows across insurance, wealth management, enterprise, and consumer banking.

Sportstech

Innovative technology that lives at the intersection of how games are played, distributed and consumed across sports, media, fitness and gaming.

More than Capital

We know it takes more than money to get things moving in the right direction. As early and committed supporters of entrepreneurs, we take a hands-on approach to propel our founders to success. Our vertical specialization enables us to provide industry expertise, ecosystem access and accelerated customer relationships. Let our insights give you foresight and keep you ahead of the curve.
