Signal Hill takes its name from the renowned Canadian historical site that has served as an important communication link and place of innovation. For centuries, its strategic location overlooking the city of St. John's, Newfoundland, made Signal Hill the central observation point between the mainland and the activities at sea. Its importance as a communication link continued into the 20th century, as the reception point of the first transatlantic wireless signal by Guglielmo Marconi in 1901. Signal Hill Equity Partners represents these same principles of communication, innovation and perseverance.
