Koru is a venture foundry aiming to build a portfolio of new startups that drive breakout growth. We build from 0-1, generating, validating, and scaling ventures that address customer frictions head-on — and leverage our corporate partnerships to gain an unfair advantage in the market.
Join us if you:
We’re a first-of-its-kind innovation platform with a well-funded runway from the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan, a $200B+ Canadian investor with over 90 portfolio companies around the world — giving us access to innovate across dozens of different industries on a global scale.
We expect to create game-changing ventures while promoting a truly entrepreneurial mindset and creating a culture of fearless reinvention.
Introducing our Venture Teams.
Our venture teams consist of world-class entrepreneurs & experts from disciplines spanning business, design, engineering, product, and growth. Joining our remarkable multidisciplinary team will challenge you to push the boundaries of the industry, without the distractions of raising capital. If you have the passion, tenacity, and curiosity to build innovative ventures from the ground up, we invite you to join our mission.
At Koru, you can unleash your research superpowers working side by side with a carefully selected group of startup veterans who recognize how vital research is in ensuring we are building the “right” product. Being based on an intimate understanding of consumers and customers is not a nice to have for Koru, but an essential part of how we approach disruptive innovation. As we continue to build new ventures, you will have an opportunity to be exposed to a wide array of industries, be a vital voice around the decision-making table, go deep within one venture and help shape the Research function at Koru for years to come.
If you have an inquisitive mindset that fuels your desire to constantly learn, improve and iterate, an ability to turn business issues into the right research questions, and connect those questions to the most suitable data collection methods balancing between fast turnaround and enough depth, then your place is with us!
