Our history

CPE Media’s private capital research history goes back to 1992 when our founder Ted joined Macdonald & Associates, a newly re-started venture capital research firm.  Ted built two industry databases, and responsible for the compiling and release of the official Canadian venture capital statistics and economic impact studies from 1993 to 1999. As the firm’s first employee, Ted played an instrumental role in helping the firm grow in revenues and head-counts, leading to the firm’s re-acquisition by Thomson Reuters.

Since then, Ted has built two industry leading databases, TechFinance.ca (purchased by the Canadian Venture Capital and Private Equity Association (CVCA)) and CVCA Infobase, tracking technology financing and VC/PE financing.  Ted was responsible for producing the official Canadian VC/PE annual statistics from 2013 to 2015.

CPE Media was re-launched to provide an independent, unbiased comprehensive data coverage and analysis on private capital (angel, venture capital, private equity, exempt financing) and public financing.
