Our Key Success Factors

Ruby Ventures leverages over six decades of business experience, in-depth expertise in a variety of industries, a stellar international reputation, a strong global network, and an aptitude for identifying transformative innovations with significant potential for success.

From Real Estate to Private Equity

Strong Background

1

We are owned and managed by the Rubinstein family of Toronto, a partner in the well-known and highly-regarded H&R Developments and its affiliated companies. For over 60 years, H&R has been developing and managing residential, commercial and industrial properties in the Greater Toronto Area and beyond. The company established the TSX-traded H&R Real Estate Investment Trust, one of the largest REITs in Canada.

Increasing Diversification

2

Founded as an extension of the real estate business, Ruby Ventures has a proclivity for complementary fields such as prop tech, utility metering, and energy storage. At the same time, the company has leveraged its principals’ experience in other areas, launching successful forays into consumer packaged goods, health care, IT and ecommerce.

Continuous Involvement

3

What counts for us, is not so much a company’s field of operation, but rather the quality of its organization, its staff and reputation, as well as the ideas and products it generates. 

Once committed to a company or a project, we often remain involved, by providing capital, industry-specific advice, and relevant connections.

 

Emphasis on Sustainability and Eco-Friendliness

We have adopted sustainable practices in our own real estate endeavors, and we expect our portfolio companies to do the same.

In addition to being socially responsible, these practices also make good business sense. They have helped us and our portfolio companies to consistently increase operational efficiency and decrease costs.
