More venture capital will be available to technology start-up companies in Nova Scotia and the rest of Atlantic Canada with the creation of two private-sector venture capital funds.
Nova Scotia's startup community is booming and today's entrepreneurs have some great examples of homegrown start-up success to look up to! On January 10, Startup Canada, in partnership with Startup Halifax, will bring some of these successful entrepreneurs together. Hear about their ups, downs and lessons learned in this celebration of Nova Scotia's most successful start-ups. Our insiders will present their companies, discuss the issues and problems they overcame, and share their future plans.
Instead of having one speaker for the month of December, we decided to open the stage to you. We want to update our podcast favourites list and we're asking for your help. Join us for some pizza and beer and share your favourite podcast with the group. Give us a little background about the podcast and why you love it!
We hope to see you December 7, at the Navigate Start-up House event space.
