What’s your next (ad)venture?

Clearco's mission is to empower founders around the world with the tools required to grow their business. We help founders write their own stories by providing them with the capital, insights, and resources they need to accelerate their trajectory. Our data-driven approach takes the bias out of decision making. Clearco has funded 8x more female founders than traditional VCs, and has invested in 7,000+ eCommerce companies across Canada, the USA, and the UK.

For Founders by Founders

Clearco co-founders Michele Romanow and Andrew D’Souza deeply understand the pains of building a business. The idea for Clearco was inspired by their own experiences and struggles in building companies and working with other entrepreneurs.

Michele bootstrapped five companies and sits on the other side of the table as a judge on “Dragon’s Den,” Canada’s equivalent of “Shark Tank.”

Andrew has raised hundreds of millions of dollars for multiple startups and is an investor and advisor to many others.

Our Values

Employee working at a computer


Eliminates gossip - hashes things out directly vs. complaining to a third-party, and refuses to be a recipient of gossip, but instead ensures that a direct conversation takes place. Can determine the difference between narrative and reality and articulate their feelings about a situation.

Meeting of upper management


Has no ego when communicating misses - doesn’t pass blame, takes ownership of the situation and focuses on solving the problem.

Three co-workers holding boxes


Taking initiative to push objectives forward faster and quickly making decisions that are reversible.

Round table meeting


Understands that they are responsible for their own situation and empowered to fix it. Doesn’t complain, owns decisions and failures and solves problems.

Co-workers hugging


Explicitly ensures others are aware they want them to win in all interactions. Uses this as a basis for all conversations, positive or negative.
