Setting the stage

Economic uncertainty, inflation rates and the outlook for economic growth are all factors influencing investors and investment in a technology sector undergoing rapid transformation.

Cautious investors

There’s no denying that investor behavior has changed considerably in recent months. Whereas there used to be a marked increase in enthusiasm and investment in AI and IoT startups, we’re now seeing a decrease in investment. This trend is particularly worrying for these industries. The main challenge we face is that valuing companies in the AI and IoT field is becoming increasingly complex. Even if financing remains plentiful, investors are no longer willing to take reckless risks with no clear prospect of profit. Companies active in these fields need to rethink their business models and develop innovative strategies to attract investment.

Valorization solutions

However, it is essential to note that, despite these challenges, significant opportunities remain, particularly in the area of mergers and acquisitions. This approach can enable companies to consolidate their market positions and capitalize on synergies, which can be an effective way of attracting value-adding investment.

In this webinar, join Mr. Nick Nardi, expert in mergers & acquisitions in the IoT and AI sector, Dr. Samir Mounir, expert in financing innovative companies, and Director of Business and Market Development at Desjardins Caisse des Technologies, as well as Eric Janosz, co-founder of AIoT Canada and expert in cybersecurity. They will bring their expertise to bear in a lunch & learn format, to clarify and identify the strategies you need to put in place to improve and sustain the value of your company, and attract value-added investment. This webinar promises to be a valuable opportunity to update market knowledge and discuss crucial strategies for positioning and financing in the AI and IoT sectors. By following the advice and insights of these experts, companies can look forward to improving their valuation and attracting strategic investments that will contribute to their long-term success.
