    MONTRÉAL (QUÉBEC) : Vince Guzzo, movie industry titan and Dragon on CBC’s Dragons’ Den, imparts wisdom through virtual and in-person events with both industry leaders and business students across Canada. From question-answer sessions to Dragons’ Den style entrepreneurial pitches, Mr. Guzzo has been sharing his multi-industry entrepreneurial journey to success and how giving back is an integral part. “Virtual lectures and events have become today’s standard to connect and although they somewhat limit interactivity and spontaneity, they allow for a broader-reaching audience, encourage entrepreneurial spirit, and support business creativity. As we start a new year, I am pleased to have the continued opportunity to deliver my message and share insights into the traits that have led me to success over the years. I look forward to do so both virtually and in person,” said Vince Guzzo, President & CEO, Cinémas Guzzo.

    A masterful entrepreneur with a diverse portfolio of businesses including multi-theatre cinemas, restaurants, a construction company, e-commerce gourmet food platform, charitable foundation, and Mr. Sunshine, his personal fashion brand, Guzzo was invited to keynote business and academic events throughout 2020. He concluded the year at the National Business School Conference (NBSC), a completely student-run event from the Asper School of Business at the University of Manitoba that brings together student leaders from across the country to network, share knowledge about how to provide a better student experience from. This was followed by Toronto’s Schulich School of Business where he spoke about crowdfunding and its role in the VC/PE industry and was a judge at their entrepreneurial pitch competition.

    In 2021, Mr. Guzzo will continue to embark on a number of new programs geared to support local businesses and entrepreneurs.
