"The Problem with Canadian Venture Financing" by Sandra Rubin, Lexpert Magazine.

Lexpert Magazine quotes Vancouver lawyer Karam Bayrakal in an article discussing the issues faced by Canadian venture financing.

Canada’s high-tech community is “under-acknowledged,” says Karam Bayrakal, a partner at Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP in Vancouver. He equates under-acknowledged with under-supported because as a national strategy, “it hasn’t been the focus of any particular government, and I think that’s one of the things you need in innovation. If you’re going to be in the innovation economy or high-tech economy, you need to have a national federal government policy that promotes innovation as a set of core principles.”
