Janet Bannister of Real Ventures, Kijiji, and Co-chair of C100
Janet Bannister is the Managing Partner of Real Ventures, Canada’s preeminent early-stage venture capital firm. In addition to leading Real Ventures and working with her large portfolio of rapidly growing tech companies, Janet is very active in the Canadian tech ecosystem; she is on the Boards of Communitech in Waterloo and Vector Institute in Toronto. In 2004, Janet launched Kijiji.ca and grew it to become one of the most visited websites in Canada. This year, Janet became the co-chair of the C100… which is the leading global community of Canadian tech leaders, dedicated to supporting, inspiring and connecting the most promising Canadian entrepreneurial leaders, and a group I am very proud to be a member of. Personally, I am very excited to see the direction she will take the C100 through her stewardship.
