Solving Canada’s fintech talent gap - Adam Felesky

Financial technology is the next great disruptor in the global economy, and yet Canada’s fintech enterprises face a distressing talent gap.

Portag3, which manages about $240-million in investments on behalf of Power Corp.-affiliated companies, said commitments already received for the second fund will eventually put its total well above $300-million and possibly as high as $400-million.
