What would you learn from 35+ years of building companies in the capital markets?

In this two part episode, Gordon Keep expounds on his experience building over 250 companies and the lessons he’s had with public venture capital.

Gordon is the CEO at Fiore Management and Advisory Corp. From his early days with the TSX Venture, helping write regulations, being an early mover into South America with what was Yorkton Securities and on to his enduring partnership with Frank Giustra to build some of the world’s most notable resource companies.

This is a history lesson where Gordon reflects on some of the deals that put Canada on the map as a major player in the international resource space. This is also a tactical discussion.

We discuss listing through CPC’s, RTO’s and IPO’s, what to pay for a shell, how to pick partners and how to tactfully take profits… We also talk timing… They won huge on Uranium, Gold and Lithium, but lost on Potash… In Gord’s words, they missed it by about 8 or 9 months.

Gordon, Frank Guistra and Brian Paes-Braga now lead the Fiore Group where they continue to advise and build remarkable companies. This is an episode you won’t want to miss… in fact, listen closely with a notepad as there’s so much value in the experience he shares.
