About

Transatlantic Capital

Empowered by Groupe Crédit Mutuel – CIC and Mouvement Desjardins

Created in Montreal in January 2013, Emerillon Capital is a new $100M venture capital fund.

Emerillon Capital emerged from a strong transatlantic partnership between Groupe Crédit Mutuel – CIC and Mouvement Desjardins, two prestigious institutions with similar structures and a long history of doing business together.

From the combination of their respective strengths and experiences emerged this new player, Emerillon Capital, to support and develop technology companies in Canada (mainly in Quebec and Ontario) and the northeastern USA.

Management of the partnership Emerillon Capital is delegated to CIC Capital Canada Inc., a Canadian subsidiary of CM-CIC Investissement, main sponsor behind the strategy and business model of the fund.


Technology & Innovation

Support companies with strong technologies

Based in Montreal, the fund is dedicated to supporting and investing in technology companies positioned in expanding sectors showing strong potential (IT, health, aeronautical, defense/security, clean technologies…).

In a transatlantic spirit, Emerillon Capital offers entrepreneurs an entry point to support their development projects in Europe, relying on the network of its lead sponsor CM-CIC Investissement, a major venture capital player in France with a portfolio of over 600 companies and 2.6 billion Euros of capital under management.
