Celtic House Re-Forms
Last month's departure of Ron Dizy from Celtic House seems like the end of an era. I haven't felt this way since the Spice Girls disbanded. Ron, together with Brian Antonen (the "Sporty Spice" of venture capital) founded the Toronto office for Celtic House, originally in a snazzy Victorian house in the Annex. Ron's departure leaves Sporty as the sole Toronto partner to manage local investments (including Vixs, Novvx, Camilion Solutions and Fresco Microchip), together with entrepreneur-in-residence Sutha Kamal ("Baby Spice"). The remaining members of the group jam from Ottawa. Let's hope this is not the beginning of a retrenchment from Toronto.
