RBC Speaker Series: Transforming Uncertainty into Opportunity

Watch the interactive fireside chat, featuring some of Canada’s top business leaders, investors and entrepreneurs.

Transforming Uncertainty into Opportunity: Entrepreneurial thinking for our new normal

It is time to start looking beyond our current pandemic-induced limitations and talk about what opportunities exist for innovators and entrepreneurs on the other side of COVID-19. It is well documented that some of the most successful companies in the world were borne out of times of crisis. Consumer behaviour will change. Demand will dry up in sectors and appear in others. New industries will emerge. The University of Toronto community is uniquely positioned to drive post-pandemic prosperity, given our strengths in both research and venture creation.

The interactive fireside chat on November 5, 2020 featured some of Canada’s top business leaders, investors and entrepreneurs who are leading organizations that actively invest in the next generation of talent. Topics covered include: changing fabric of cities, evolution of e-commerce and retail and the latest trends in fintech.
