Scale-up capital for ambitious CEOs and their businesses
We created InterGen Capital, a for-profit expansion of our non-profit work to address a key problem facing Alberta companies. While start-up capital is available for early-stage companies, those with greater revenues often struggle to get the investments they need to realize the true potential of their businesses. We want to change that.
InterGen capital only invests in companies and CEOs that meet the following criteria:
- Revenue of approximately $1M-$5M per year, with rare exceptions below $1M.
- Ambitious management teams targeting significant (rather than incremental) growth.
- Clear competitive advantages in target markets
- Vision and/or a plan for serious business growth, given access to capital.
