McRock Capital is the first dedicated iNtelligent iNfrastructure venture capital fund focused on the intersection of sensors & software and large industrial markets - some are calling it the Industrial Internet. We are in an era of profound transformation as the digital world is helping us maximize the efficiency of our most critical physical infrastructures. Intelligent devices, intelligent systems and intelligent decision-making represent the primary ways in which large industries can deeply merge with the connectivity and analytics of the digital world. McRock invests across Canada and the USA.
Co-founded by entrepreneurial venture capitalists Scott MacDonald and Whitney Rockley, McRock Capital is no ordinary VC firm. The co-founders have combined their strong backgrounds in industrial industries with a unique talent for identifying and scaling Information
Technologies within these multi billion-dollar markets. Their successful investment track record includes companies like RuggedCom (acquired by Siemens), The Pressure Pipe Inspection Company (acquired by Pure TSX:PUR), SpectraSensors (acquired by Endress+Hauser), and Silicon Energy (acquired by Itron NASDAQ:ITRI). The team has been working together for over a decade and has invested globally having been based in San Francisco, London, Zurich, Montreal and Calgary.
