About Investor Scene

Investor Scene is focused on providing retail investors with exclusive insight on and breaking news about today’s North American small-cap companies that may be poised to become the household names of tomorrow. Each article aims to provide simplified and timely information on investing and personal finance so retail investors are empowered with more resources to make the best decisions for their future.

Founded in 2021, Investor Scene is led by former business journalist Jeremy Szafron. He is a capital markets expert who has more than a decade of experience counseling and investing in publicly traded small-cap companies.

Jeremy founded Investor Scene after seeing a lack of online resources for small-cap investors. He decided to take matters into his own hands, as he was tired of hearing about the hottest stocks only after they were considered “hot.”

Jeremy and the editorial team at Investor Scene focus on providing readers with macro- and micro-level content about trending and established industries from cannabis and cryptocurrency to oil, gas, and other commodities. 

Our Team

Jeremy Szafron, Founder and CEO

Jeremy Szafron has been in the public eye since 2005, starting his career as the on-air Entertainment Reporter for CTV, in Montreal.

He remained in broadcast journalism for more than a decade, eventually becoming a regular live TV reporter, commentator, and personality for Bell Media, Canada’s leading content creation company across television, radio, and digital. Jeremy reported on and interviewed celebrities such as Justin Bieber, the Kardashians, and Madonna, as well as political figures such as Al Gore and Justin Trudeau.

In 2007, Szafron became an on-air Business Reporter and Analyst for Bell Media, where he made regular appearances on BBN Bloomberg as well as on multiple Canadian television and radio stations.

After his time at Bell Media, where he was featured as a business reporter on regular National CTV News programs, Jeremy became the Host and Producer of Spotlight, an online current affairs show from PressReader. The show reached more than 30 million individual subscribers across multiple global markets.

In 2018, Jeremy started his first media venture, The Green Scene Podcast, a top global cannabis podcast that discussed the burgeoning industry from an independent journalist’s perspective. The podcast, which was available on all podcast streaming platforms, grew to more than 350,000 subscribers with 400,000 weekly downloads.

The Green Scene Podcast evolved into Investor Scene, an investor-focused media company launched in 2021that reports on exclusive deal-flow of and insights into small-cap Canadian companies on the Canadian Securities Exchange and Toronto Stock Exchange.

Jeremy has since advised small-cap companies on public financing and corporate governance, investor relations, and marketing, and he has hosted multiple TedX events throughout Canada.

Now the CEO and founder of Investor Scene, Jeremy lives in Vancouver, B.C. with his partner Jennifer, and their dog Pepper. He graduated from Concordia University in Montreal with a degree in Broadcast Journalism.
