About Us

A platform for raising impact capital and making impact investments

SVX is an impact investing platform for ventures, funds and investors seeking social and/or environmental impact alongside the potential for financial return.  We provide a single access point for raising capital and making investments.

We work across sectors including cleantech, health, work and learning, food, and social inclusion, providing support to enterprises focused on early cancer detection to community power co-operatives producing renewable energy.  We work to help them raise capital so they can focus on their business.

We work with all investors, from foundations and family offices to everyday investors, to help them identify opportunities and to support their decision-making efforts so they can match their money with meaning.

OUR GOAL

Our journey began almost ten (10) years ago with a seemingly simple idea: to create a social stock market.  It would be a place where we would connect entrepreneurs and organizations seeking to tackle our most pressing problems with investors seeking impact alongside return.  

We hope this will help move us towards a world where all investments and all enterprises have a positive impact. We realize it is not a journey that will take a year.  It will take a generation or more to achieve the transformation we seek.

Fortunately, we have momentum.  This momentum is driven by a public that is increasingly interested in aligning their money and their values, by leading investors like foundations and financial institutions that are following through on commitments to invest for impact, and by innovators from entrepreneurs to institutions that are setting the foundation for a more just economy in Canada and beyond. 

SVX is a not-for-profit corporation, powered MaRS Discovery District, supported by TMX Group Inc., the Government of Ontario, Torys LLP, and many other partners.
