Richard T. Groome
Richard is founder and managing partner of Notre-Dame Capital Inc, a company focused on helping entrepreneurs disrupt industries through innovation and experience. His expertise stems from financing small and mid-size emerging growth companies. Prior to NDC, Richard started Groome Capital, and created Canada’s leading underwriter of IPO’s, Private Placements and Secondary offerings on the Internet. The firm was sold to Desjardins in 2001. He joined a new and vibrant executive team with a very aggressive plan to grow Desjardins Securities into the top 10 securities firms in the country. Consequently, in 2005, Richard left Desjardins to set up what is now Notre-Dame Capital.
