Like many people in Canada's tech scene, Ventures West had an impact on our careers. McRock's Whitney Rockley landed her first tech job out of school with Ventures West portfolio company, Revolve Technologies. Whitney was Revolve's first market analyst and the company went on to be acquired by Sweden-based SKF.
The end of Ventures West was not unexpected or sudden as many members of the VW team moved on to successful new endeavors over the years. What it is, is the end of an era, and many entrepreneurs and co-investors have a reason to remember and say thanks.
