Event Details

A one hour Teleforum with Mr. Matthews, sponsored by CATAAlliance will take place on  Thursday, June 14th at 11:00 a.m. EST. 

Businesses Need new Venture Capital Model

After years of steady downtrend and a major dip due to the 2008/09 recession, 2011 Canadian VC fund investments in all types of tech companies were up 34% from the 2010 year (just as they were in the U.S.), and the highest since their 2008 crash, at $1.5 B. This has led some to assume that ‘the VC crisis is over’. But unfortunately, that $1.5B compares to just short of $2.1 B in 2007. Venture capital investments in Canada have been dropping since about 2001, so even the already low level of 2007 (compared to earlier years) has not yet been regained.


Mr. Matthews will talk about some of the factors affecting Canada's VC scene, propose measures that would assist in strengthening the sector and then outline areas of global business opportunities. He will also provide a review of the mission and mandate of Wesley Clover, a source of business growth resources. 

Moderated by CATA CEO, John Reid, the Teleforum will engage callers in information sharing and Q & A discussion. Experts on the call will include: Dr. Russ Roberts, Sr. VP, Tax, Finance and Advocacy, CATAAlliance, and team of financial experts.

Join us for this informative one-hour Teleforum and Q&A and benefit from Mr. Matthews insights and vision. 

Who should attend?

Senior level executives in the public and private sectors involved in Canada’s advanced technology industries, including public policy makers at all levels.

Your local call in number and access code will be sent to you via email. Note that the Call-in Registration fee is free for CATA members and $47 (plus gst) for Non Members. Fees are reinvested in our research and business development programs.
