Innovacorp is Nova Scotia's early stage venture capital organization. It works to find, fund and foster innovative Nova Scotia start-ups that strive to change the world. The goal is to help those start-ups commercialize their technologies and succeed in the global marketplace. Target industries include information technology, life sciences, clean technology and ocean technology. Early stage investment is at the core of Innovacorp’s business model. The team also gives entrepreneurs access to world-class incubation facilities, expert advice and other support to help accelerate their companies. Innovacorp makes equity investments through the Nova Scotia First Fund (NSFF), a venture capital fund backed by the Nova Scotia government. NSFF’s objective is to generate a return for Nova Scotia. This is measured by the total value of the investment portfolio (i.e., realized distributions and unrealized changes in value) to the total amount contributed by the Province (Modified TVPI ratio* ). *The TVPI ratio typically includes in Paid In capital the amount of management fees paid to the fund manager. NSFF capital funds are 100 per cent used to make investments, and investment management costs are included in Innovacorp’s operating budget. The measure is noted as modified to indicate it is not directly comparable to TVPI statistics.
