April 22, 2021
Vistara Capital is excited to announce that we have partnered with Peerscale, a leadership organization for Canadian technology companies based in Toronto. As a Gold Partner, we look forward to being active in the community and creating value for the organization and its member companies through education, funding solutions and support.
“We are excited to welcome Vistara into the Peerscale community as a partner in growth for our members. Vistara is known for their flexible approach to providing growth capital to Canada’s growing technology companies and this aligns well with many of our members looking for financial support to scale their growing businesses.”Chris Rasmussen, Executive Director of Peerscale.
Our participation in Peerscale will be led by Randy Garg, Founder & Managing Partner and Neil Kenley, Director of Investments. Neil joined Vistara from Element AI in early 2020 to build out Vistara’s Toronto office and lead our efforts in the Fintech and AI sectors.
“One of my goals since joining Vistara last year was to meet local technology leaders and continue our support of the Toronto tech ecosystem,” said Neil. “We recognized Peerscale as a leader in the community as they bring together technology executives to learn from one another. By supporting the organization, we aim to help them provide top-tier education and support for their members.”
Partnership’s First Collaboration
The partnership’s first collaboration will be a fireside chat between Randy Garg and Al Karim Somji, Founder & CEO of Zafin. They will discuss how Karim, his team and early shareholders were able to raise growth capital while “owning their growth” as they built one of Canada’s leading Fintech businesses and created a premier SaaS product & pricing platform for financial institutions. Join us on May 27th at 11am ET.
