5:30pm to 8:30pm


Flying time between NYC and Toronto just over an hour, but starting a company–say a FinTech or RegTech firm– can be very different. Take just setting up. How easy is is to get talent? What support does the government offer? What’s local networking like? How hard it it to find space? And then there’s growing. How hard is it to get funded? When do you start thinking about crossing borders? Hear from firms and incubators in both markets about the challenges and rewards of starting up a firm in each location, where we are today and what the future looks like. The Panelists: Jeff Hindle, Managing Director, Fintech & Commerce, MaRS Discovery District Jane Barratt, Founder and CEO, Goldbean Dave Nugent, Head of Investments, Wealthsimple Kelly Fryer, Program Manager, Barclays NYC, Techstars This event is supported by the Government of Ontario's NYC office.
