Varshney Capital Corp. (VCC) is a family office and recognized leader in venture and impact investing. Our portfolio showcases a multitude of highly successful entrepreneurial ventures operating at the intersection of innovation and impact.
VCC considers itself strategic, value-add and more importantly, value-aligned investors. Through our ties to international C-Level executives, expansive network of co-investors, and organizations like EO, YPO, YPO Gold, CEO and TiE - we offer more than financial support. Our global perspective and advisory approach serve as the foundation for long-term partnerships that drive measurable progress and success. We also are able to finance companies through our specialized Public Venture Capital (PVC) model and facilitate their listing on the TSX Venture Exchange or CSE via Reverse Take-Over (RTO) process in Canada. Our commitment extends beyond the initial listing, as we support post-listing for 3 to 5 years, building synergistic relationships for long-term market success or if private, right through to a strategic sale exit.
