Jonathan and Neil are both former Investment Bankers from RBC Capital Markets. In 2012, both left RBC to pursue their passion for entrepreneurship by starting up MTL Capital, a Search Fund (an interesting fund raising vehicle for entrepreneurs originated by H. Irving Grousbeck, a professor at Stanford University). Following an unsuccessful search for a company, in 2014, they started up their own business. Goodfood (, formerly Culiniste, provides ready-to-cook meal kits designed by in-house chefs who each week prepare a series of recipes.

Jonathan and Neil will speak to us about their rollercoaster journey from an Investment Banker to raising capital for a Search Fund and then finally starting up their own business which has significantly grown from 3 employees to 100 over the last two years. Their success has been mentioned in the press a lot lately:

Following the talk there will be a networking session open for all. Refreshments and drinks will be provided.

Attendance is free, but space is limited and is on a first come, first serve basis. Please RSVP.

See you there!
