Pender Ventures is pleased to announce that Isaac Souweine has joined the team as a Partner.
Isaac brings extensive experience in both product management and active, seed-stage investing. He is passionate about partnering with amazing founders to build game changing companies. Over the past six years, Isaac has invested in over 30 businesses on behalf of Real Ventures, a Montreal-based venture capital firm. Prior to his work with Real Ventures, he held a number of product management roles with technology companies in Canada and internationally.
“What excites me is leaning into risk and betting on the future before it becomes obvious,” Isaac said. “I believe investors play a crucial role in the development of great companies, by providing capital, but also by buckling down and working alongside founders to provide advice, connections and emotional support. After meeting the Pender Ventures team, it became clear to me that the platform they have built is the ideal place for me to progress, as well as the perfect environment for me to apply what I have learned to help the firm evolve and scale.”
“Being active members in our local technology communities allows us to bring a success network to our portfolio companies and Isaac has demonstrated an incredible ability to build such a network in the Quebec market.” said Maria Pacella, Managing Partner, Pender Ventures. “As we expand our investment strategy across the country, we need talent to help extend our networks. Having resources on the ground in new communities will allow us to continue to our focused strategy to invest in capital efficient companies across Canada.”
Please join us in welcoming Isaac to the team!
