2008 Financial Crisis vs. 2020 COVID-19 Fallout
CVCA has partnered with leaders in our industry to share knowledge and skills to help navigate the ever-changing private investment landscape. The Invest Canada Webinar Series continues September 30 and will take us through the remainder of 2020. Each webinar will be recorded and will be made available for your convenience.
Join CVCA member Mark Usher, Managing Director and North American Market Leader of CIBC Innovation Banking and Kim Furlong, CEO of CVCA, for an interactive discussion about the current state of venture capital in Canada with comparisons from the 2008 Financial crisis.
The full impact of COVID-19 on venture capital is still to be fully understood so we must draw lessons from past experiences. While the two crises are very different from cause to scale, they are rough waters for entrepreneurs to navigate. Mark and Kim will reflect on some of the major economic similarities and differences and the opportunities as we look to the future.
