District Ventures Capital invests in early-stage Canadian companies that develop, manufacture, market, distribute or sell consumer-packaged goods, with a particular focus on the food, beverage, beauty and health and wellness sectors.
The Fund will seek investments in companies that exhibit strong and unique opportunities for market leadership, growth and economic value creation. Prospective investee companies will have strong revenues, and generally require capital for growth of up to $4 million to commercialize their products; initiate product roll-outs and expand distribution and market presence.
Investment decisions will be based on:
Existing revenues, projections and cash flows
A unique innovation in the food and health space
Natural and organic products
Expanding distribution network
Competitive landscape and market potential
Management team, and experience
Business model and scalability
