EEI and its founder, Seymour Epstein, have a long history of bringing visionary ideas to life, while funding and accelerating the growth of established enterprises.
Our portfolio has a broad focus, including residential and commercial real estate, subsurface data management services, and start-ups in technology, media, and communications. While we are active primarily in Canada, our broader reach spans the globe.
Our level of involvement ranges from pure financial investments, including investing in externally-managed investment funds, to active engagement with certain projects to which we can add the value of significant insight and wisdom.
From seed round and growth-stage funding to long term real estate and investment holdings, our small, passionate team of experienced entrepreneurs and financial and strategic managers provide vision and acumen to all opportunities.
