How Canadian tech took over the TSX

Canadian tech has seen an explosion in venture funding over the last six months. What about the other side of the coin?

“We are just scratching the surface.”
– Dani Lipkin, TMX Group

Today, we talk to Dani Lipkin, Director of Global Business Development at the TMX Group, which operates the TSX and TSX Venture Exchange. Lipkin runs through the number of full-year public market records the first six months of 2021 have broken, why, and why it took so long.

Lipkin also walks us through SPACS and the emergence of the TSXV, other potentially untapped investment products that might be the next thing to pop, and how companies like Facedrive are monitored by the TMX Group.

Unfortunately, Lipkin doesn’t provide us with any solid advice on how to get this podcast on the public markets.
