Our history

CPE Media’s private capital research history goes back to 1992 when Ted  joined a newly re-started venture capital research firm. With no knowledge about relational databases, Ted built two industry databases, and managed and produced the official Canadian venture capital and economic impact statistics 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 and CVCA Infobase, tracking technology financing and VC/PE financing.  Ted was responsible for producing the official Canadian VC/PE annual statistics from 2013-2015.

CPE Media was launched to provide an independent, unbiased comprehensive data coverage and analysis on private capital (angel, venture capital, private equity, exempt financing) and public capital.  Our all-new industry leading all-inclusive private capital deal database was purpose built to track and analyze important missing industry metrics.

What sets us apart from all others
