When Vida Gabriel was working on her master’s at the University of Ottawa in 2017, she met Sean Wilson, a chemical engineer, at a student holiday potluck where Wilson drew her name for Secret Santa. Gabriel, who was studying how to make polymers biodegradable, offered to help Wilson with grant applications for his invention—a carbon-capture machine built for cold weather. Two years later, they founded TerraFixing, a start-up that develops technology to pull carbon dioxide out of the air more efficiently. The company is now valued at over $10 million, thanks in part to $2 million in government funding and a $1.6 million investment from the founders of Tugliq Energy, a Montreal-based wind-power provider that will supply renewable energy to run TerraFixing’s tech, making its carbon-capture method even greener.

Four years ago, Neo Financial was a handful of people in a room in the Prairies trying to figure out how to reimagine the Canadian banking industry. Today, co-founder Andrew Chau’s fintech company (he also co-founded delivery app Skip the Dishes in 2012) has more than 700 employees working to give its million-plus clients a better relationship with banking. Neo’s intuitive app offers real-time spending insights and has more than 11,000 merchant partners where users can earn cash back. This year, it’s launching a travel card with Cathay Pacific Airways and building a credit card for Tim Hortons in the coffee chain’s foray into financial services. With investors like Peter Thiel’s Valar Ventures and Shopify’s Tobias Lütke, Neo Financial is now valued at over $1 billion.
