We invest in the top 1% of companies that represent the best match with our Advisory network, with $30K upfront and up to an additional $100K if pre-established milestones are met, all while providing guidance and connecting with hundreds of the most relevant Advisors.
After portfolio companies obtain their initial investment and complete our value added due diligence program, we assess fit for follow-on investment in which we would co-Lead the Seed and the Series A rounds.

HOLT ADVISOR ARMY
Our advisor network makeup is one-third financial institutions, one-third banks, and one-third experts. Together, we pick the top 8 to 12 applicants to partner with.
Our network of advisors stands 500-strong, and are carefully chosen based on how well suited they are to support early-stage fintechs. The majority reside in Canada (approximately 70%) while the remaining are located internationally, giving our fintechs an edge into entry for all markets.
Beyond this, we have a large expert base made up of universities, governments, regulators, service providers, non-profits, and incubators/accelerators, giving our partners the support they need to succeed.
