Founder and Chairman, Globalive and Author
” Why business as usual is destroying Canada, and How We Can Win “
October 3rd, 2017
The Canadian economy isn’t in trouble. Yet. But it will be soon, because Canada isn’t prepared for the fourth industrial revolution. Our problem is not that we’re small, but that we think small. Our business culture is dominated by insular oligopolies. Outmoded regulations strangle opportunities for growth. Too often our young entrepreneurs have to leave to succeed, even when they don’t want to go. But there’s still time to fix this, and compete for the gold in business in the digital age. Anthony Lacavera delivers this powerful talk based on his controversial new book, How We Can Win.
Anthony Lacavera, the founder and chairman of Globalive Capital, is best known for launching WIND Mobile, which he sold for $1.6 billion after it grew to become Canada’s fourth largest wireless carrier. As a venture capitalist, he has a significant stake in dozens of start-ups in Canada and the US, and has done business in more than thirty other countries; as a mentor and investor, he’s heavily involved in our most successful accelerators and incubators, including MaRS, Creative Destruction Lab, DMZ and Next Canada.
