In June 2011, a group of Montreal based technology entrepreneurs got together and founded Valsef Group with the goal of building a world class conglomerate of knowledge based businesses. For the first two years of its existence, Valsef Group was a private investment firm focused on buying equity interests in publicly traded firms that had the potential for above average returns for long periods of times. Valsef Group is also majority owner of Valnet Inc. founded in 2012 and operated by the same group. Valnet owns and operates online properties and in the past 3 years has made a series of strategic acquisitions. It’s portfolio includes leaders in its vertical such as ScreenRant.com, TheRichest.com & BabyGaga.com. Recently, Valsef Group developed a new subsidiary Valsoft which will acquire software in vertical markets to operate in perpetuity.
