Closing Keynote (Waterfront Ballroom)
George Rossolatos, CEO, Canadian Business Growth Fund
Topic: Fixing The Growth Capital Gap: Emboldening Canadian Entrepreneurs To Think Bigger

Description: Canadian entrepreneurs are amongst the best in the world at starting companies.  But we are not as renowned for scaling them into global leaders.  For many firms, a lack of patient minority capital support and experienced guidance has seen them sell too early -- and give up control -- because this growth capital gap has limited their options.  The Canadian Business Growth Fund (CBGF) has a national mandate to bridge that gap and give Canadian entrepreneurs a better opportunity to scale up, keep control, and win on the biggest stages. 

The CBGF’s CEO, George Rossolatos, will share the story of the Fund’s emergence, its early success in backing entrepreneurs across Canada and describe the critical role we all play in helping Canadian entrepreneurs to “think bigger”. 


2:30pm - 4:00pm
