Paul Dugsin

Paul and Supreet, soon after meeting, found that they had very similar views on investment philosophy, people, operating methods, and technology. Similar training and backgrounds also led them to spot an arbitrage opportunity between Canada and Silicon Valley. They also believed that deal sourcing today is no longer a local phenomenon but needs to be global. This doubles as an exit philosophy too Ð early stage companies eventually grow and expand to other markets. Raiven has built a global team on the ground in various markets. Paul has raised $1B for tech and R&D initiatives across many disciplines and sectors and has an uncanny ability to find the critical constellation of factors that will lead to success, and to pull no punches when they are missing. Some of Paul’s projects have been world-first technology breakthroughs, giving Paul a keen eye for the revolutionary compared to the incremental. Throughout his career, Paul has led M&A, turnarounds, and rapid growth initiatives in companies of all sizes. Paul has invested and grown many companies through a private investment fund with substantial returns. Paul’s deep experience with change and growth are critical elements of Raiven’s ability to forge risk into return for its investors and other stakeholders. Paul is a graduate of TRIUM, an integrated Global EMBA graduate degree program issued jointly by the London School of Economics, New York University, and HEC School of Management.
