Please join iF for an informative free lunch and networking opportunity presented by KPMG as Derek Smyth (Omers Ventures) discuss The Changing VC and Fundraising Landscape in Canada.
As a startup, it’s important to understand how an investor views a deal, whether they are an Angel or a Venture Capitalist. Find out how your team, market size, traction and proof points may be evaluated and discover the value of “warm” introductions to investors. Learn why not all deals are good for VC's and why your company can still be successful even without investor backing.
