Building global
technology ventures locally


We empower startups to grow their business globally.

Strategic Geographies

We have carved out an investment niche by successfully focusing on early stage deep biotechnology startups that scale across the Pacific in two major markets - North America and Asia.

Bioscience Technology

Bioscience is one of the fastest growing industries laden with disruptive potential. Saltagen identifies and scales companies with high-growth potential and strong fundamental technology research capabilities.

Seed to
Series B

Unlike most other early-stage funds, we drive our own exits. By investing early, and reserving capital to follow on for companies showing success, we build winners with the founders and our network.

“ What Saltagen Ventures is essentially endeavoring to do is develop a corridor between the Canadian technology ecosystem and the Hong Kong ecosystem, so Canadian startups can turn to Saltagen Ventures in order to facilitate this process and mitigate and/or eliminate any obstacles along the way, especially when it comes to funding.”

" Saltagen Ventures was a pre-seed investor in Zennea and continues to be an important advisor to our strategy & growth. Yina is a valuable board observer as she believes in the vision while contributing introductions to partners, investors, and resources. We have strong confidence that Saltagen Ventures is the right partner for achieving Zennea's goals. "
