The Road to ‘Smart’ Money: Practical advice for Canadian entrepreneurs seeking funding for their startup
May 29, 2013 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
101 College Street
Raising money for a startup can be time-consuming and exhausting. But it is also rewarding. Being aware of the realities around what kind of money a startup should raise―and the source of these funds―can make the difference between a startup that stalls and one that succeeds.
Join our panel discussion as we examine ways for Canadian entrepreneurs to effectively seek out investors across the globe, and why it is critical to be selective when choosing who the money comes from.
We will look at how successful Canadian startups navigated fundraising cycles, and what impact domestic and/or foreign investment may have on the overall health of Canada’s high-tech industry.
Many of our themes will elaborate on those discussed in the recent MaRS report, Borderless Investments.
