The blockchain-based technology, coined by sLABS as “the portable internet”, was founded by digital architect and visionary Iddris Sandu and is backed by investment firm Marcy Venture Partners (MVP), co-founded by Shawn Carter (JAY-Z), Jay Brown and Larry Marcus.

Acting as an entry point into the metaverse, LNQ will further enhance user experience in Web3 and foster connectivity through the intersection of technology, sustainability, culture and fashion. sLABS will unveil the product via live stream and in-person at the official launch event at NeueHouse in Los Angeles this weekend alongside official partners including color authority Pantone, streaming service music company Tidal, sustainable footwear company ALES GRAY, web3 platform Polygon, and several other brands committed to exploring the metaverse and web3 ecosystem.

“We identified a gap in the Web3 industry and took advantage of it to develop materials that would equip users and creatives with the tools they need to create, interact and share with their communities while connecting the physical and digital worlds. like never before,” said Iddris Sandu, Founder of sLABS and LNQ. “There are no words to describe how truly proud we are of the LNQ-enabled hardware we have created and are thrilled that our community and our users discover this world with us and our partners.”

The partnership between sLABS and Pantone spans digital and physical integrations and will kick off at the Los Angeles launch event on May 21 with an interactive Pantone activation and keynote address from Elley Cheng, General Manager and Vice President of Pantone.

Together, the colors that evoke feelings of optimism, comfort and confidence provide a solid foundation as we continue to look and design for the future. “Ultimately, the goal was to select a selection of colors that could serve as physical touchpoints in a virtual world; colors that could live comfortably in a commercial fashion environment while maintaining an organized element and approach. It was essential to find colors whose universal appeal could work and fade beyond gender norms and rules, as was the desire for these colors to display a timeless and timeless quality,” said Laurie Pressman, vice -president of the Pantone Color Institute.

The partnership is another extension of Pantone’s exploration of color through physical and digital properties like the Metaverse.

Additionally, Pantone has revamped some of its products to improve workflow for design communities, including the launch of Pantone Connect, which officially launched in September 2021 and helps designers work seamlessly in this new hybrid environment. .

“As we continue to explore the interoperability of physical and digital design within our products and services, it is important for us to work with partners who can provide concrete examples of how this digital future could be applied. in a practical way. We are excited to partner with sLABS and leverage our products and solutions to further our mission to help the evolving needs and workflow of our design community,” said Cheng.” We are only at the beginning of this exploration, and we look forward to what will be a long-term partnership with sLABS and our future in color accuracy and design solutions across all different media.”

Tech stocks have tumbled and observers expect the bearish current to spill over into private markets. But the numbers in Canada so far tell a different story.

In the first quarter, Canadian companies raised $3.98 billion in venture capital, up 18% from the same period in 2021, according to Refinitiv. Driving the rise: 11 deals valued at over $100 million, including 1Password’s record US$620 million funding. This continued into the second quarter, with Sheertex Holdings Corp., Tailscale Inc. and Neo Financial Technologies Inc. all raising nine-figure funding. This year already ranks second for the number of $100 million transactions in Canada, after 2021.

The latest deal: Montreal-based Vention Inc. announced on Tuesday that it has raised US$95 million ($123 million) led by Toronto-based growth capital firm Georgian Partners, which also led its $38 million funding in 2020 Other participants in the deal, which values ​​Vention at more than $1 billion, include Fidelity Investments Canada, White Star Capital, Bain Capital Ventures and Bolt Ventures.

Vention, led by former McKinsey consultant Etienne Lacroix, is a vertically integrated company serving the industrial automation market. It is a unique combination of parts supplier, hardware designer, e-commerce company and free 3D computer-aided design (CAD) software provider.

Its customers are engineers from more than 3,000 factories belonging to companies such as Toyota, General Electric, Tesla, Siemens and Airbus. They create, design and order custom equipment on Vention’s online platform for use in their production lines, including test benches, robotic workstations and assembly lines. Vention supplies hundreds of its own metal building parts, as well as other items supplied by third parties, including robotics giants Fanuc and Universal Robots. It has a library of 2,000 ready-to-use templates, some of which have been created and some of which have been shared by customers. Orders arrive within days in a flat pack with assembly instructions.

“They’ve brought a complete automation package that doesn’t require an engineering degree to imagine,” said Brandon Bond, an automation engineer at a Toro plant in Beatrice, Neb., who has ordered autonomous guided trucks from Vention. “It’s a CAD platform that requires no CAD knowledge and a machine motion platform that requires no programming knowledge.”

Sales of Vention have nearly tripled over the past two years and hover between US$35-45 million per year. It plans to invest its new funds in research and development and global sales efforts. “They created this new category and just grew and continue to be an exceptional company,” said Emily Walsh, lead investor at Georgian.

Mr Lacroix said funding was secured early this year “at the worst possible time” as tech stocks slumped. But Vention received several offers and met its valuation target, he added. The deal was reached at the end of March, but was only announced on Tuesday. “Fortunately for us, the Vention story is very strong, the business performance is very, very strong, and the story just keeps getting better,” he said. Ms Walsh said it was a ‘competitive process’ and ‘it was clear what the market valued the company at’.

Industry participants say there are a few reasons why the continued deal flow for private tech deals despite the government market sell-off. Some deals in recent months have been pegged for the end of 2021 “when the market is better,” said Anthony Mouchantaf, director of venture capital at Royal Bank of Canada’s RBCx innovation banking platform. The number and size of transactions “is a lagging indicator of what’s really going on.”

But eager private capital providers are still actively seeking quality companies, said Allan Goodman, head of the venture capital group at Bay Street law firm Goodmans: “There is always demand for investment in these companies and these companies always need investment”. David Wismer, co-head of global technology and corporate investment banking with BMO Capital Markets, agreed “there’s always usually this flight to quality where the best companies will continue to get good valuations.”

Still, industry players expect a slowdown in private markets this year. Mr Goodman said deals take longer to close because of a “divergence of expectations” between what entrepreneurs and investors think the companies are worth. Chad Bayne, Co-Chair of Osler’s Emerging and High-Growth Practice, Hoskin & Harcourt, said “rounds are underway [but] it’s definitely not as robust as last year. Many venture capitalists take a wait-and-see approach.

Mr. Wismer sees the current aberration between public and private markets as temporary. “I wouldn’t understand if Canadian private markets would be somehow immune to the impacts of the dramatic decline in public equity values,” he said. “In private markets, there will clearly be a bit of accountability.”
