Talking point: The Fund II has closed $128 million to date, and has a final target of $150 million to $175 million.

The trend is indicative of Canada’s burgeoning tech ecosystem, according to Round13 managing partner Bruce Croxon, who said these new funds will help cut larger cheques to keep Canadian firms in Canada.
