Our history

Our private capital research history goes back to 1992 when our founder, Ted Liu, joined a newly re-started venture capital research firm.   Ted helped build two industry-leading databases which were responsible for providing the official industry statistics to the Canadian Venture Capital and Private Equity Association (CVCA), formerly known as Canadian Venture Capital Association (CVCA).

Ted is the architect of TechFinance.ca (purchased by CVCA) and CVCA infobase. Ted has been responsible for producing the most comprehensive and verified Canadian VC/PE annual investment and fundraising statistics.

CPE Media was re-launched in 2016 to provide Canada’s only truly independent, unbiased, and comprehensive data coverage and research on private capital and public financing.
