Investing in the next generation with Jacques Perreault, Senior Partner @ Brightspark Ventures

April 23, 2021

On this week’s show, we spoke with Jacques Perreault, Senior Partner @ Brightspark Ventures.

Over the past 20 years, Jacques has been actively involved in the financing of Canadian technology companies. He played a leading role in the development and growth of the technology subsidiary of the Caisse de dépôt et de placement du Québec (formerly known as Sofinov), one of the largest venture capital organizations dedicated to the financing of Canadian technology businesses.

Jacques is a proven investment professional with experience in developing quality deal flow, building relationships and supporting companies in their development toward their growth plan and/or liquidity event. His broad expertise in technology financing and his network of local and international contacts are major assets.

On the show, we spoke about:

  • Working with the next generation of operators
  • Brightspark’s investment thesis
  • How they expanded possibilities for retail investors
  • Why he doesn’t invest in crypto (yet)
  • Investing in non-obvious areas

Jacques is the quintessential investing professional. He has an incredible track record and was nice enough to share many insights during our conversation.
