Through a newly developed national partnership, The51, Sandpiper Ventures, and other like-minded organizations are joining forces to unlock Canadian capital and invest it in Canadian female entrepreneurs and women-led companies.

Canada51 understands that when women are afforded equal opportunity to participate in the entrepreneurial field, not only will economic growth experience an unprecedented and deeply essential upsurge, but the social, political and environmental value generated by giving voice to women’s ideas, business models, products and services will be immeasurable.

We commit to: unlock female capital, increase women’s participation, build awareness and capacity, deliver economic value and influence policy change.
