The Ivey Alumni Association and Institute for Entrepreneurship (at Ivey) are organizing the Ivey Entrepreneurship Forum on Thursday, November 13th at the Toronto Board of Trade. The primary objective of the forum is to “facilitate financing and staffing of Ivey-led entrepreneurial ventures”, and features Ivey alumni who have successfully raised financing as well as investors with an Ivey background. There would be some company presentations as well.
The forum is open to everyone though, not just Ivey alumni, and seems like a good opportunity to learn more about the process of raising venture capital financing. Presentations run from 1pm to 7pm, followed by a networking reception. Ticket price is only $30 and you can register at this link.
