State of Depression

Last month, OMERS Ventures associate Mark Goad published a two-part report on the global depressed population, the role of technology in causing depression, and a VC’s investment framework for solutions.

Welcoming Anthony!

We are thrilled to share that Anthony Mouchantaf has joined the OV investment team headquartered in our Toronto, Canada office.

Prior to joining OV, Anthony was Co-Founder and President of Rthm Technologies, a mobile health and consumer genetics company. Rthm raised several rounds of venture and institutional capital, including strategic funding from Shoppers Drug Mart and George Weston Ltd. Rthm’s products garnered millions of downloads worldwide with tens of thousands of paying subscribers, before being acquired by a publicly-traded company.

More on Anthony, his path to VC, and his investment areas of interest in this short interview.
