Government Should Leverage Angel Investors: Michael King, Finance Professor at the Gustavson School of Business, University of Victoria
Play • 8 min

“To get to the punchline, the government should set up a co-investment fund that matches angel investments dollar for dollar. It should adopt a national tax incentive scheme that already exists in British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Nova Scotia. And it should consider replacing the loans that are being made available through its support packages with convertible notes. The Canadian government should leverage angel investments to ensure that early-stage, high-growth companies are going to survive and thrive despite the pandemic.”
 — Michael King, Finance Professor at the Gustavson School of Business, University of Victoria
