The Importance of Debt (William Lam - Jeeves & Filip Stoj - Silicon Valley Bank)

Sep 15, 2022, 9:00 – 11:00 PM

StartWell Studios, 230 Niagara Street, Toronto, M6J 2L4

When most people think of the D word they get a little scared - 'debt' isn't considered to be a good thing in most people's personal lives. Yet, the average Toronto homeowner carries $600K of it, and most businesses rely on it to meet their working capital needs, especially when cash doesn't flow evenly month-to-month.
