by 11 months ago

This past month HIGHLINE celebrated continued portfolio momentum, highlighted by two exciting acquisitions (Hurrier & SqueezeCMM) and took a leadership role in key national initiatives (Vancouver Startup Week & CABI annual conference).

Recent exits include the acquisition of Hurrier by Rocket Internet-owned Foodora, to help its expansion efforts in Canada. Also acquired this month was SqueezeCMM by one of its own customers, Digital Journal Group.

On September 24th, HIGHLINE co-hosted the Vancouver edition of the Canadian Tech Showcase during Startup Week to a crowd of 350+ investors and startup community members. The event showcased over 25 top BC-based startups, both from the HIGHLINE portfolio and other high-momentum companies in our investment pipeline.
