Shirley Speakman

Senior Partner, Cycle Capital Management

As one of Canada’s most prolific early stage cleantech investors, Shirley has led investments in some of Canada’s most compelling clean technologies. Her leadership role in cleantech investing has attracted international capital to Canada and ensured that Canadian technologies that positively impact the environment reach their global potential. Her efforts have directly contributed to the creation and growth of some of Canada’s most environmentally impactful companies reducing waste, chemicals, energy and water consumption. Most recently, Cycle at Shirley’s direction funded Minesense, a data analytics platform that helps mines significantly reduce and optimise their use of chemicals and water, greatly curtailing emissions.
