MaRS Centre in Toronto recently held an interesting lecture as part of its Entrepreneurship 101 series where it invited Charles Plant to speak about venture capital. Here's the description:

Charles Plant is an entrepreneur who has been on all sides of the funding equation, from banker, to technology entrepreneur to angel, investment banker and now on the Investment Accelerator Fund Management Committee.
