Round Table on Stimulating Private Sector Early-Stage Investment

On June 21, 2012, the CIE, in cooperation with the federal Department of Finance, hosted a Round Table on Stimulating Private Sector Early-Stage Investment. A select group of Canadian entrpreneurs, venture capitalists, academics, and government officials from the Department of Finance and Industry Canada discussed and debated how best to allocate $400m of public funds to stimulate private sector early-stage investment. The session focused on determining the underlying problem the funds should target (e.g., lack of seed financing; lack of angel financing; lack of venture financing, etc.), how the solution program or fund should be structured, and finally what metrics should be used to measure performance.
