This virtual program is part of a national collaborative of organizations, The Women and Nonbinary Impact Network for Venture Capital (WIN-VC), working to provide services, programming, events, and dedicated resources to women and non-binary entrepreneurs and gender lens investors across Canada who are working towards becoming investment ready and increasing the pool of investors driven to invest in these ventures. 

WIN-VC acknowledges the support of Innovation, Science and Economic Development (ISED) Canada. ISED has awarded funding for WIN-VC that will make the venture capital environment more inclusive for women by transforming traditional investment processes, processes and knowledge into respectful and meaningful approaches that value equity and impact with a focus on diverse women and non-binary entrepreneurs and SMEs including Black communities, Indigenous peoples, racialized populations, persons with a disability, 2SLGBTQ2+ and new Canadians.

WIN-VC est reconnaissant du soutien apporté par Innovation, Science et Développement économique (ISED) Canada. L'ISED a accordé un financement à WIN-VC qui rendra l'environnement du capital-risque plus inclusif pour les femmes en transformant les processus d'investissement traditionnels, les processus et les connaissances en approches respectueuses et significatives qui valorisent l'équité et l'impact en mettant l'accent sur les femmes diverses et les entrepreneurs non binaires et les PME, y compris les communautés noires, les peuples autochtones, les populations racialisées, les personnes handicapées, les 2SLGBTQ2+ et les néo-Canadiens.
