INVESTOR PANEL Q&A

Please join us in this interactive session which will include lessons, stories and impressions from both Canadian and American Angel investors to tackle the reasons behind why these companies fail or succeed in foreign markets.

What incentivizes cross-border investment? If there are two similar companies from two different countries, what are some of the driving forces that influences their success or failure when entering a foreign market? 

**Panel discussion will last 30-45 minutes followed by 15-30 minutes of Q&A
