Next-Generation Internet: C$14 Million Investment in Kaloom Creates 50 Tech Jobs in Montréal

The increased use of mobile devices, social media and cloud computing, combined with the growth of online video and the availability of new content, is pushing data centre networks beyond their capacity. And the problem will only get worse with the advent of the Internet of Things, smart cities, artificial intelligence and self-driving cars. Enter Kaloom, a Montréal IT start-up bent on resolving the issue of saturation.

Created in 1983, the Fonds de solidarité FTQ is a development capital fund that calls upon the solidarity and savings of Quebecers to help fulfill its mission to contribute to Québec's economic growth by creating and protecting jobs through investments primarily in small and medium-sized businesses in all spheres of activity.

The Fonds also seeks to encourage Quebecers to save for retirement and to offer its over half a million shareholders-savers a reasonable return over and above the outstanding tax benefits they receive for purchasing Fonds shares. A leading purveyor of unsecured risk capital (growth and venture capital), the Fonds continues to drive our economy.
