I had loads of fun at the MaRS District Entrepreneurship VC interview (Ochard, iNovia & Rosetta) watch the webcast

09Mar09

Last Wednesday I had the pleasure of participating in one of the MaRS District courses up in Toronto – CIBC Presents Entrepreneurship 101.

 

I had allot of fun. Peter Tolnai is a good friend and one of the original private VC fund managers in Canada in the mid ‘80s, and is currently Managing Partner at Orchard Capital. Peter put together this session and acted as moderator and started the VC interview by forcing his two VC guests (Chris Arsenault of iNovia Capital &  Michael Midmer of Rosetta Capital) to drink some “Truth Serum” just to make sure we share real thoughts and comments with the crowd.

 

So if you have time to watch a fund and very interactive session (Q&A went on for 30 minutes post the 60 minute session) take a look at the Video:

 

MaRS District Collaboration Centre in Toronto

CIBC Presents Entrepreneurship 101.

March 4th re-webcast of the session titled: How to Get Money From a VC

Every entrepreneur wants to know the secrets for successfully pitching a VC or an angel. Join guest lecturer Peter Tolnai from Orchard Capital along with Chris Arsenault of iNovia Capital and Michael Midmer of Rosetta Capital, all prominent VCs who tell you their secrets for making a successful pitch.  They also host a Q&A session in which the panel  answers your questions directly without saying, "Come back in a few months when you’ve made some more revenue traction!"
