Pycap Venture Partners exhibited at the annual Cantech Investment Conference from January 29 to 30, 2019 at the Metro Toronto Convention Center.
In its sixth year, this year’s conference has expanded from a one day event to two days with a bevy of speakers, exhibitors and industry experts for investors to connect with.
The Cantech Investment Conference featured more than 100 technology companies that span a wide range of industries, including: blockchain, cleantech, fintech and esports. The show had exhibitors in other sectors like biotech and pharma and, of course, cannabis.
Extending from the success of the Pycap Course at the University of Toronto, the Schulich School of Business at York University has now brought on Pycap to create the curriculum, administer and instruct its class Venture Capital & Private Equity for its Master of Business Administration and Master of Finance programs.
This course is primarily geared to students interested in working in venture capital or other private equity organizations at some point in their careers. It is also valuable for those who intend to work alongside venture capitalists as managers of firms being financed by such investors and for students interested in applying aspects of private equity investing to established organizations. The course is divided into twelve modules focusing on the venture capital cycle including fundraising, investing, and exiting. In the final module the course explores new frontiers in venture capital including corporate venturing.
