In this webinar, CVCA member Mark Usher, Managing Director and North American Market Leader of CIBC Innovation Banking, and Kim Furlong, CEO of CVCA, have 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 reflect on some of the major economic similarities and differences and the opportunities as we look to the future.
