On this week’s show, we spoke with Stephan Morency, Head of Investments @ Fondaction. Stéphan Morency has more than 15 years of experience as a private equity fund manager and entrepreneur specializing in enterprise corporate strategy consulting.

He founded 2 companies and managed them from inception to divestiture. He currently works at Fondaction, a 2B+$ fund dedicated to sustainable development, as Chief Investment Officer.

He is primarily active in the impact investment sectors targeted by Fondaction and related to climate change, sustainable agro food transition and land revitalization. He is also serving as board member for several organizations including Transition Energetique Quebec.

On the show, we spoke about:
