Breakout Session 1A

Unfortunately, an “urban legend” is still fully present in the ecosystem: The Canadian VC asset class is a losing money class thus should not be supported.

The objective of this panel will be to demonstrate firsthand, through stats and trends and through panelist experiences, why and how the asset class is now credible and worth investing in, and will particularly focus on the evolution of the “Canadian track record” of venture capital activity.
