“We’re really, really confident that we will be able to weather the storm,” Maurice said.
The Series C for Busbud also comes as the coronavirus pandemic continues to put financial pressure on firms and make for an uncertain global investing environment. That environment is making it harder than normal for small and medium-sized companies to grow into bigger firms, which was a pre-existing issue in Canada.
The CBGF was launched in 2018, following work done by the federal government’s Advisory Council on Economic Growth, which found many Canadian companies weren’t growing after they reached a certain point. And Rossolatos says that, at the moment, some investors have had to focus on their existing portfolio or hold off on additional deals.
“However, the growth capital gap in Canada has become much larger as a result of the pandemic,” he said. “At CBGF, we have chosen to ‘lean in’ to support entrepreneurs where we could.”
The Toronto-based CBGF, which is backed by 13 of Canada’s biggest financial institutions, started out with capital commitments of $545 million from shareholders such as Royal Bank of Canada and Manulife Financial Corp. The fund typically shoots for investments of between $3 million to $20 million in established Canadian companies, taking minority ownership stakes in them in return.
CBGF has now invested $137.8 million in 15 companies, including seven investments made during the pandemic, Rossolatos said.

Car Insurance for Canadian
Car insurance is vital, like snow days and maple syrup. Part of the Canadian experience. Not all countries need insurance policies by regulation as Canada does; the concept of a pay-as-you-go fuel tax has also been used as a substitute for traditional auto insurance in some areas. But, no matter how important it is, investing in the service is never the wrong decision. Insurance will save motorists from the economic burden of the ultimate inevitability of the road: accidents. They’re going to happen to everybody, no matter their experience or ability. Driving, like every other aspect of human life, is naturally a human mistake.
Also, the most experienced driver can be distracted in our current driving climate. With a reputable insurer, financial stability is only one thing to think about. Between the radio, the billboards, and the careless children thrashing around in the back seat, a few minutes on the road will provide more means of diverting someone’s attention than a few hours in front of the TV. All it takes is a misconstrued stop on a slippery day or a neglected shoulder search to cause thousands of dollars of harm to your property or the property of others. If the accident’s cost exceeds the price of the vehicle that caused it, auto insurance will save the driver from financial ruin. The protection in an appropriate strategy protects drivers in ways that the airbag has never been able to do.
The security provided by insurance is so vital that it has been obligatory for any Canadian who hopes to get behind the wheel. However, some jurisdictions offer consumers a preference as to who is protected by their auto insurance. Coverage is always mandatory, but the strategy is malleable. The right of motorists to monitor their plans and coverage does not end with the business either. Car insurance premiums are affected by a variety of factors. While some of these items are beyond the control of motorists, such as age and gender, they can still make many choices to lower their prices. Choosing a reliable vehicle, traveling shorter distances, and having fewer tickets are items drivers can do to keep their car insurance premiums as low as possible.
Some drivers, particularly new ones, are wary of individualized rates – paying different amounts for other people. Insurance firms, though, are not swindlers or profit-seekers. They’re just trying to keep auto insurance prices as reasonable as possible. A car that leaves the garage twice a week is less likely to have an accident than a car that goes twice a day. Station wagons are more comfortable to fix than imported sports cars. Every person has different driving habits, so it only makes sense to have a foreign car insurance policy. Acquiring a car insurance policy is more than just making a deal; it is the start of a friendship that will help the driver out in the toughest of times.
Some provinces in Canada, where motorists have too many car insurance options, any additional information could save the insured motorist thousands of dollars. It pays to be updated. The right strategy will keep you safe when anything else doesn’t matter where you’re in Canada.
