HIGHLINE – VC-backed accelerator program

Our story

To truly help startups, accelerators must evolve to serve the needs of the founders we back and the startup ecosystems we operate in. In 2014, we identified a need for quality pre-seed investors who could be the first cheque in on fair terms, who could build a pan-Canadian network of ambitious founders, and who could be a bridge to follow-on investment, allowing companies to scale faster. We formed HIGHLINE.vc to be that investor.Led by entrepreneurs, backed by successful investors, and built on the foundations of Extreme Startups and GrowLab, HIGHLINE.vc was formed to attract the best founders. We love writing the first cheque but our goal has always been to have impact beyond the bank account
