Hi everyone - Glad to be part of this community! By way of introduction, I currently run a finance innovation practice (Venture Stem) that helps banks and financial institutions (family foundations, funds, etc.) to build better products for entrepreneurs. For the past year I’ve been collaborating with SVB on loans tailored to robotics / clean tech, and developing some Canadian-specific startup loans. I also teach entrepreneurship at UBC, and mentor with a few accelerators. Overall I’m passionate about creating better funding options for entrepreneurs (especially in underserved sectors). I’ll be moving to New West later this month for any of you that like to venture a bit further east in Vancouver!
