5d ago

RBC Ventures is new kind of organization one that marries the strength of one of the world’s most trusted and successful financial institutions with a mission to reimagine the role we play in people’s lives.

We are building a world class team focused on creating new experiences, exploring new business models and developing new relationships that add value to how people live and work.

Ownr is on an ambitious mission to help entrepreneurial Canadians start, maintain and grow their businesses. We are building a platform that takes the difficulty out of registering and maintaining sole-proprietorships and corporations, letting our incredible owners save time and money to focus on what matters - building their business.

We’ve already helped start 14,000 companies, and we’re just getting started. As an RBC Venture we are both a startup and a part of Canada’s largest bank, enjoying the benefits of each.
