The social and clean energy industrial revolution is here and happening right now. New technology solutions driven by these massive market opportunities will deliver great financial returns and improve our society and environment.
Amplify aims to back the creators of some of the world’s most impactful companies. Six years into this journey, we have financed and successfully exited companies achieving a social or environmental mission.
And we’re just getting started.
We invest in companies leveraging technology to solve for a better future.
Impact investing is investing in companies that can provide a significant measurable impact alongside market-rate returns. By doing well and doing good, we hope to amplify impact investing and change the way all investors think about investing. Amplify Capital is a Canadian investment fund that provides early-stage companies long term equity solutions and strategic and operational support as they develop their business to solve three of our society’s defining challenges.
Investing in health, education and environment industry-changing technologies since 2016.
The MaRS Catalyst Fund was incubated and supported at the MaRS Discovery District. Due to its success and impressive returns, Amplify Capital spun out of MaRS and launched the next fund independently. MaRS Catalyst rebranded as Amplify Capital and closed the first close of its LP II in 2020 with a final close in January 2022.
Today, we are continuing on the success of our investment thesis and multiplying our impact and reach. We currently manage $42M over two funds.
From Fund I to Fund II: our learnings
It has been almost five years since our first investment from our Fund I. Since then, we have doubled the team size, achieved great social and environmental impact, invested in 16 companies, of which one exited, and reviewed over 1,200 investment opportunities. Building on the success from our Fund I, we have even bigger ambitions for our Fund II. It’s an exciting time for Amplify Capital.
Our Investment Strategy
We invest in founders who are relentless in their mission to solve big challenges that are urgent and necessary. We are comfortable leading and co-leading as the impact expert in the rounds we participate.
