The BC Tech Fund is managed by Kensington Capital Partners, which will make all investment decisions. Kensington was selected based on its strong performance and experience, which includes a history of positive investments in B.C.
In addition to the BC Tech Fund, Kensington will manage the $90M of capital currently committed through the BC Renaissance Capital Fund and build a more robust Provincial venture capital system by increasing the supply of local venture capital, and drawing other investors into B.C.
