Jean-Francois Marcoux

Co-Founder and Managing Partner

I was born and raised in Canada, and I am raising my three kids there. I share most of my business time between Montreal, Toronto and New York City.

Before co-founding White Star Capital, I co-founded Ludia, a mobile game publisher that scaled globally and was successfully sold to FremantleMedia. At White Star, I led investments in enterprise software companies including Dialogue Health Technologies (TSX IPO – CARE), Mnubo (Acquired by AspenTech), Vention (Recognized as the disruptive innovator in the 2020 Forbes Manufacturing Awards) and Spatial (AR/VR Collaboration Platform).

I very much enjoy meeting and working with so many talented and ambitious entrepreneurs; their drive and passion remind me of my own journey. I am fortunate to spend my days with such gifted individuals.

I am an avid skier and enjoy ski trips and travelling around the world for business or for pleasure with family and friends.

My favorite book is Homo Deus, by Yuval Noah Harari. The author looks at the three most important challenges facing humanity, specifically prolonging life expectancy and its ramifications.
