Transforming Opportunity into Value

What is CVI?

CDRD Ventures Inc. (CVI) is the commercialization vehicle of The Centre for Drug Research and Development (CDRD), Canada’s national drug development and commercialization centre. It is uniquely positioned to meet a critical need for life sciences and healthcare companies, researchers, and investors, and to be an active partner in a new era of global drug discovery, development and commercialization.

CVI’s pioneering translational model provides flexibility in terms of the types of investments and partnerships, while also providing partners with the confidence that the preclinical technologies they license and/or invest in meet strict industry standards. This model has successfully generated companies and technologies that are primed for commercial development in partnership with private sector partners and investors.
