Mark Skapinker

Brightspark Ventures
Managing Partner

Mark Skapinker has been an entrepreneur and seed investor in the Canadian software industry since the inception of the personal computer in the 1980’s.

In 1988, Mark co-founded Delrina Corporation, makers of WinFax, one of the most popular Windows programs of all time and one of Canada’s most successful software companies. Mark was president of Delrina until it was acquired by Symantec in November 1995. Delrina grew to over 600 people, with offices in six countries, and a public listing on the TSE and NASDAQ. In 1995, Skapinker anticipated the growth and impact of email and the Internet, and sold Delrina to Symantec Corporation for over US$400 million. 

In 1997, Mark founded Balisoft Technologies. Balisoft’s software bridged the traditional customer service industry and the emerging Internet industry.  In 1999, Balisoft/Servicesoft was acquired by Broadbase Software, which in turn was acquired by Kana software Inc (Nasdaq: KANA).

In 2000, Mark co-founded Brightspark Ventures in Toronto. For over 15 years, Brightspark has been an early stage and seed Venture Capital investor.  Mark is a Managing Partner at Brightspark. Brightspark Ventures has invested in many successful Canadian software companies and has twice won the Canadian Venture Capital Association “Deal of the Year Award”, for the sale of ThinkDynamics to IBM and for the sale of Radian6 to Salesforce.com.

Brightspark works with early stage software, Internet, and mobile companies across Canada. Most recently, Brightspark has adapted its investment model and is leading the charge into the new online VC market in Canada.

For entrepreneurs, Mark offers an insiders view to the scope and magnitude of what it takes to create and build a company from an idea through to a thriving company. His passion is working with startup companies.
