Founded in 1994, Covington Capital Corporation initially established itself as one of Canada's leading providers of retail venture capital funds.
Over the last 10-15 years as the retail venture capital landscape matured and the venture captial valuation and liquidity cycle presented unique challenges that certain retail venture capital funds were incapable of negotiating, Covington Capital Corporation was proud to evolve into a solution provider to many retail venture capital fund competitors that experienced challenges.
As a result, Covington's current role in the Canadian venture capital ecosystem is as a specialist in the consolidation of mature retail venture funds and selected limited partnerships; and as a direct growth equity investor to mid-market businesses.
For direct investments Covington Capital Corporation is actively pursuing growth equity transactions, and is focussed on mid-to-late stage enterprises with a defensible market niche and strong market characteristics.
