Helping and Investing In Rising City B2B Founders
First we help.
Then we invest.
“We achieved 250% growth in MRR and GrowthX Capital invested!”
Julius Nyanda, HouseKeys
100% Focused on Product-Market Fit
We take the guesswork out of going to market.
We’ve sequenced every step along the path to product-market fit so that founders know exactly how to systemtically grow revenue.
We’ve built a libary of playbooks and templates to help founders avoid reinventing the wheel and waisting their valuable runway.
We gladly roll up our sleeves and work hard alongside founders to build meaningful relationships and help them achieve real outcomes.
Our Stewardship Pledge
AS AN Innovation Investor
We believe the venture capital community can no longer ignore the ethical and moral issues that arise alongside its investment activities.
The Stewardship Pledge, pioneered by the Kauffman Fellowship, is an attempt to respond to this need.
The venture capital industry can no longer ignore the ethical and moral issues that arise alongside its investment activities, from power imbalances, lack of inclusion, or conflicts of interest. There is an ethical and moral imperative for a proactive and affirmative approach from the investor community.
As innovation investors, we recognize:
- Our industry of innovation capital has the power to drive both private value creation and sustainable, positive societal transformation;
- Our purpose is to direct capital and expertise to create shared value by accelerating the pace of innovation through company formation and growth;
- Our investment decisions affect the well-being of individuals inside and outside of GrowthX, the companies in which we invest, our capital partners, the industries in which we work, and beyond, both today and in the future; and
- Our behavior must set an example of integrity and mutual respect, eliciting trust and esteem from the multiple stakeholders we serve.
We will remain accountable to our peers and to society for our actions and for upholding these standards.
Pledge #1: Good Faith
We will not advance our own interests at the expense of our investee companies, our capital partners, or society.
Pledge #2: Honesty
We will manage our investments with loyalty and care and we will report the performance and risks of our organization and our investee companies accurately and honestly to our capital partners.
Pledge #3: Trust
We will understand and uphold, in letter and in spirit, the laws and contracts governing our conduct and that of GrowthX and our investee companies, and refrain from corruption, unfair competition, or other business practices harmful to society.
Pledge #4: Integrity
We will recognize the power imbalance inherent in the relationship between investor and entrepreneur, and will not abuse our position, engage in sexual harassment or discrimination, or condone it in the organizations and communities around us.
Pledge #5: Dignity
We will protect the human rights and dignity of all people impacted by GrowthX and our investee companies, and oppose discrimination both within our investee companies and in the process of selecting investments.
Pledge #6: Diversity
We will promote a culture of inclusion, seek out diversity of all types, and foster a sense of belonging among all the organizations and communities in which we work. To further continuing awareness and action, we will participate to the extent of our abilities in open discussion and reporting across our industry as well as encourage others to do the same.
Pledge #7: Posterity
We will develop ourselves, and coach, mentor, and apprentice the next generation of founders and investors.
Pledge #8: Sustainable
We will work with our stakeholders to support sustainable inclusive prosperity and to minimize the negative consequences of our actions to the environment and society.
"The Alberta Innovates Revenue Accelerator has been way better than anything that I could have imagined for TIQ Software! My coach is amazing!"
Jason Suriano, TIQ Software
"We started the program at $300k ARR and grew $50k/mo throughout the program. We’re now at $500k ARR and with a healthier pipeline than ever before!"
Derrick Koenig, Ontopical
"I applied the principles of The Revenue Accelerator to go from an industry-agnostic solution to a niche offering with actual market traction!"
Lauren Wester, Lavngarde
"Before investing in my company I always felt that the interactions with GrowthX were more of a mentor/mentee relationship where they truly wanted to see me succeed and not just for their own economic gains. They are a great team that perfectly balances humanity, the need to create value (for all involved) and unique skills focused on accelerating the growth of promising companies."
Eric Howie, Life Detection Group
“We started the program pre-revenue and within 2 months began working with 4 partners, got to over $50K and raised our seed round!”
Rachel Drew, Cadence
"I highly recommend MXP Online. The knowledge we have acquired through this program has not only made an immediate impact in our business but will continue to make a lasting impact as we grow."

"We doubled revenue every month we were in the program!"
Chad Verity, Hölmetrics
“We chose GrowthX as investors for their B2B expertise, for sharing our belief that success comes from customer revenue first and their stellar Market Acceleration Program. The team helped Contentools with their mapped out methodology applied to go-to-market, allowing us to replicate the step-by-step process to our own reality and scale.”
Emilia Chagas, GrowthHackers
“We capitalized on the program’s insights and had a strong year, achieving 600% ARR growth and 450% customer growth. We are on pace to hit and exceed our first $1MM ARR this year. ”
Leighton Healey, KnowHow
“Having just completed Techstars, very few discussions ever covered selling and everyone in our cohort was B2B! It was all about how to get investment after Techstars. Sales was the part we needed help with the most and Techstars never covered it! The Revenue Accelerator has been incredibly helpful!"
Camille Mackenzie, Kintail
"During the program we doubled revenue and we experienced the best revenue month for 4 straight months! [The Revenue Accelerator] turned out to be everything I hoped it would be and more. There is a correlation to our recent growth and my focus and what I learned from GrowthX."
Keith Kleinmaier, Tenant Tracker
"We grew 6X through the program!"
Brandon Kwong, Air Trail

We all know that finding product-market fit is critical for any founder looking to grow their startup and attract investors. Accelerator and investors constantly stress to founders that they must acquire and demonstrate that they have product-market fit in order to be...
A lack of local capital. That’s one of the most common challenges that we hear from accelerator operators (and founders) in nascent startup ecosystems around the world. In reality, when we dig deeper, in the vast majority of those ecosystems the challenge is not a...
