Toronto Venture Group: Hiatus?

Last week's "Speed Dating for Capital" marks the first time in months that the Toronto Venture Group has been publicly involved in an event for the venture community. Rumours have been abounding that TVG, with its substantial roster of sponsors and members, is now on hiatus since March's Financing Forum. "On hiatus" is never a good thing; when "Square Pegs" was put on hiatus, we didn't see Sarah Jessica Parker on tv again for 12 years.

Whatever the real story is, I am deeply concerned about what this means for our community. What does it say about us as a business generation centre when we can't rally support for a group branded with the name "Toronto"? The group's breakfast meetings - easily the largest gatherings for the startup community here in town - have also disappeared from the events calendar. Let's hope for good news soon.
