Stefanie Corbett

Chief Executive Officer, Innovation PEI

Stefanie has been helping entrepreneurs achieve their goals for the last 12 years. With a background in strategic planning, financial analysis, and leading high-performing sales teams, she is passionate about pushing entrepreneurship forward and helping companies gain easier access to capital.

Prior to her position with Innovation PEI, Stefanie was a partner at Island Capital Partners, a venture fund based in Prince Edward Island. Island Capital invests in early-stage companies with high growth potential and strong founding teams. She was instrumental in establishing the fund, which is a first-of-its-kind in the province. Stefanie was the primary lead working with the Island Capital portfolio companies and the limited partnership, a network of private investors. She also worked with early-stage companies through the local incubator to better prepare them before they take on investment.

In the past, Stefanie has sat on multiple boards including the Charlottetown Airport Authority, Synapse, Startup Zone and Communities 13 Inc. She was also appointed to the Premier’s Council for Recovery and Growth. Stefanie gives back to the community and has dedicated many volunteer hours to the Stars for Life Association and the North River Minor Hockey Community.
