Made At McGill

On today’s show, our guest is Charlie Feng, co-founder at Clearbanc, a venture capital firm led by Michele Romanow of Dragon’s Den fame. Clearbanc is the biggest ecommerce investor in the world. In 2019, they had the goal of “backing 2,000 businesses with $1 billion in non-dilutive capital by the end of the year.” And as you’ll hear in the conversation that ensues, they succeeded. 


Our conversation spans across Charlie’s career growth, lessons learned from his previous startups, and even some personal development stuff.


Of course we also dive into how Clearbanc is different from other investment firms including their “20 minute term sheet”, the 2 metrics that they base their investment decisions on, and how they funded 8 times more female founders than the venture capital industry average.

Every faculty, every building, every classroom. Made At McGill is a highly produced, narrative-driven podcast focused on their origin stories. And it's the first Canadian media program to commit to a 50-50 gender balance for guests.

The best way to learn entrepreneurship is by making your own mistakes. But we'd argue that the 2nd best way is to learn from others' mistakes...by listening to their stories.
