In the beginning…
The Valsef Group was founded in 2011 by a group of Montréal-based technology entrepreneurs with the goal of creating a world-class conglomerate of knowledge-driven businesses. The Valsef Group’s initial focus for the first two years was buying publicly traded, knowledge-based companies.
In 2012, Valsef Group established a majority-owned subsidiary, Valnet Inc. The company owns and operates online properties and has made a series of strategic acquisitions over the past four years. Its portfolio includes some of the largest YouTube channels as well as leading content-based websites. Valnet has grown to become one of the top five global web publishers.

Why partner with us?
Unlike private equity and venture capital firms, we want to buy and retain companies indefinitely. That’s right; we don’t sell businesses. We form a strategic alliance with the existing management team. We recognize the dedication and perseverance required to create a firm and place a premium on the company’s, customers’ and workers’ well-being over short-term goals.
We consider our company to be an extension of ourselves, and we take great satisfaction in delivering excellent service to our customers as well as possibilities and a positive work environment for our staff.
