Vision

Our vision is a revitalized Indigenous economy in Canada.

Indigenous people in Canada struggle to remove impediments to economic inclusion, growth, and wealth. Because of these barriers, Indigenous entrepreneurs who work hard to get ahead don’t have access to the same resources as their non-Indigenous counterparts. Indigenous entrepreneurs cannot, or do not want to, access traditional capital, which slows down growth. They do not have capacity-building support or expertise in their communities, even though their entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well. Economic reconciliation is a non-starter, as Indigenous entrepreneurs are rarely able to scale their businesses, even if they have strong ideas and product offerings.

Raven Indigenous Capital Partners was founded as a solution to this oft-seen problem. We use existing structures - impact investing and strong relationships in the Indigenous community - to breathe life into a re-emerging Indigenous economy. Our namesake, the Raven, is central to rebirth and transformation in Indigenous cultures. We endeavour to use the element of transformation in our work, creating an equitable and prosperous future for Indigenous peoples in Canada.

Mission

Our mission is to empower Indigenous entrepreneurs with the capital and expertise they need to succeed.
