Knowledge Labs: Venture Capital in the Wake of a Crisis Registration

May 27 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm









Fintech has seen increased popularity over the years, with record funding levels and rising valuations. Then came the COVID-19 pandemic – ushering uncertainty into every aspect of our lives. The lack of clarity around the real impact of the situation has made it hard for all stakeholders.

Join us for a fireside chat with Adam Felesky, CEO of Portag3 Ventures, to discuss how the pandemic is impacting venture capital, the challenges and opportunities it brings, and how to take action now to impact future success.

Discussion and audience Q&A will be moderated by Dr. Benson Honig, Professor, Human Resources and Management, DeGroote School of Business.
