CDPQ has developed partnerships with several funds that support businesses in the start-up and development phases. This strategy enables us to support the growth of SMEs and provides access to an incubator of promising businesses.

Many of these funds operate at Espace CDPQ, one of our initiatives that seeks to accelerate the growth and globalization of Québec SMEs.

Espace CDPQ is an excellent ally. This entrepreneurial ecosystem brings together numerous investors and organizations that are dedicated to financing and partnering with companies, and that have diverse, complementary expertise and global business networks. It also gives you access to several investment funds, including the Espace CDPQ fund.
