Samso chats with Synergy Resource Capital's managing director Paola Rojas

This Rooster Talk episode is all about the capital markets in Australia with Synergy Resource Capital's managing director Paola Rojas sharing her thoughts on what is happening in this area.

I met Paola in May 2019 and we had a great conversation which prompted me to reach out to her to speak on The Rooster Talk. Paola works in the smallcap scene and we have a lot in common.

Paola shares her experience in the industry and gives some wise thoughts. A native of South America, it is interesting to get her view on what will be of the post-COVID era.
