At this week’s CIBC Presents Entrepreneurship 101 lecture, attendees were treated to the sight of three senior Venture Capitalists (Peter Tolnai of Orchard Capital, Chris Arsenault of iNovia Capital and Michael Midmer of Rosetta Capital) being given MaRtian truth serum and baring their souls as to what they really look for in an investment opportunity.

It’s time to turn the tables and give you, the entrepreneurs in the audience some virtual truth serum and to ask you: what do you really look for in an investor? Is it just the money? Brains? Good looks? Tell us what you really think.
