Abdera is an oncology company developing targeted alpha therapies (TATs) for patients with relapsed, refractory, and metastatic cancers. Its targeted radiotherapies utilize purpose-built vectors to specifically target high-energy radio-isotopes to tumors and metastatic cancer lesions. This new class of drugs holds tremendous untapped therapeutic and commercial potential, and has generated over $10B in recent M&A, financings, and product launches – and are expected to comprise 70% of the $30B nuclear medicine market by 2030. It was launched by adMare BioInnovations, Canada’s global life sciences venture, in partnership with industry leaders AbCellera, and some of the country’s most successful scientist entrepreneurs.
Amplitude is a full-stack venture capital firm using a unique growth model to build Canadian companies with world-class management teams and scale companies to breakout potential. With over $300M under management and offices in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver, Amplitude applies a proven, evidence-based approach to investing in leading precision medicine companies.

Congruence Therapeutics is a biotechnology company working at the interface of computational and experimental drug discovery to design novel small molecules for diseases of protein misfolding. Using structural bioinformatics, computational chemistry, and machine learning, the Company deploys an in silico platform that enables the design of new pharmacological stabilizers, a validated class of small molecules, at an unprecedented speed and scale.
Deep Genomics is using artificial intelligence to build a new universe of life-saving genetic therapies. The future of medicine will rely on artificial intelligence, because biology is too complex for humans to understand. At Deep Genomics, our geneticists, molecular biologists and chemists develop new ways of detecting and treating disease using our biologically accurate artificial intelligence technology.
DrugBank is the world’s first intelligent and comprehensive drug knowledge platform. With the help of artificial intelligence, our team of medical and scientific experts gather, author, verify, and structure all of the latest biomedical information into one knowledge platform. Then we make this platform easy to access through DrugBank Online (our free-to-use website), data downloads, or software integrations. Our goal is to augment human intelligence so that all medical information is used to its fullest potential, because we want to ensure that everyone in the world has access to the best possible medical outcomes.
Gandeeva Therapeutics is a rapidly growing precision biotechnology company harnessing the power of cryo-EM technology and machine learning to advance drug discovery and development at scale. Gandeeva seeks to achieve transformative societal impact on public health by revolutionizing drug discovery and by lowering the risks of late-stage clinical failures. Our unique and world-leading AI-enabled cryo-EM drug discovery platform combines deep biochemical and structural knowledge of the most important protein sites for targeting with tools to cast precision spotlights that translate this knowledge into better, faster and cheaper treatments for patients.
Notch is developing a pipeline of cellular immunotherapies originating from pluripotent stem cells that are specifically engineered to address the underlying biology of complex disease systems. The company has unlocked the ability for large-quantity production of T cells and other cells from any source of stem cells to bring best-in-class cell therapies for cancer and other immune disorders to thousands of patients. The core of the Notch platform is the Engineered Thymic Niche (ETN), which enables precision control of cell fate during the differentiation and expansion of stem cells in suspension bioreactors without the need for feeder cells or serum. The ETN has the potential to generate immunotherapies with decreased variability, increased potency, and engineered improvements.
Prilenia is a clinical-stage biotech company focused on developing novel treatments for neurodegenerative and neurodevelopmental disorders. Our lead asset is Pridopidine, a first-in-class oral drug candidate with an established safety profile and potential in multiple movement disorders and neurodegenerative diseases affecting adults and children. Pridopidine is currently being evaluated for the treatment of Huntington’s disease in our global Phase 3 PROOF-HD trial, and for the treatment of ALS in the Phase 2/3 HEALEY platform trial.
Repare Therapeutics is a developer of oncology drugs designed to target specific vulnerabilities of tumor cells. The company's drugs combine a proprietary high throughput gene-editing and target discovery method with high-resolution protein crystallography, computational biology and clinical informatics, enabling patients to improve cancer treatment both with single therapy and in combination with existing drugs and treatments.
Valence is committed to unlocking the true potential of deep learning in drug design by unifying best-in-class deep learning technologies with intuitive infrastructure to make these technologies more broadly accessible to R&D organizations of all sizes. Valence's AI-enabled drug design platform has been extensively validated and is currently being used to identify and design drug candidates in collaboration with industry-leading partners. The company is pioneering the application of few-shot learning in drug design and is developing and deploying novel machine learning methods for molecular property prediction, generative chemistry, and multiparameter optimization. Valence (formerly InVivo AI) was founded in 2018, is advised by deep learning pioneer, Dr. Yoshua Bengio, and is proudly headquartered in Montreal at Mila, the world's largest deep learning research institute, with an office in Cambridge, Mass.
