Diagram Ventures remains bullish on FinTech companies as it launches its latest venture fund with a first close of $100 million CAD.

  • Not concerned about the current dip in the FinTech market and still sees tons of opportunity
  • Through this latest fund, the firm will invest in both companies it helps create as well as companies it does not (to avoid limiting the funds potential)
