In the last few weeks BCE Capital, the venture capital arm of BCE, has quietly been preparing itself for life post-buyout. newly dubbed Summerhill Venture Partners, their site is up and re-branded with a new advisory board to boot. Historically, BCE Capital had only one limited partner -- BCE. With the exception of a few early stage opportunities here in Canada - Third Brigade, Radian6 and Vantrix - much of its investing in the last few years has taken place in the US. I expect there will be further details this fall about how, and with whom, the fund is transforming itself.
