Bootstrapping in America: Canada Week!
Jun 14, 2015
Here at tastylive, we love highlighting local Chicago entrepreneurs, as well as companies across America.
Earlier this year in Toronto, Incubes hosted “Going Global,” a startup event, in conjunction with Chicago’s 1871. Ten Canadian and Chicago companies were showcased, and hundreds of community members were invited to hear how several startups were already expanding globally.
As co-CEO of dough and tastylive, I was invited to present at the event. While there, I met a lot of entrepreneurs, representatives from the Canadian Consulate, U.S. Ambassador to Canada and was ultimately connected with the Toronto Stock Exchange, one of the largest stock exchanges in the world.
The event facilitated interesting conversations and unique partnership opportunities. When I returned to Chicago, we wanted to find a way to deepen these connections.
So as a way to introduce Toronto’s talented entrepreneurs to a wider audience, we wanted to provide an opportunity to showcase some of these exceptional Canadian entrepreneurs.
As a result, we’re excited to announce the launch of “Bootstrapping in Canada Week” on tastylive. From June 15 to June 19, five Canadian entrepreneurs will join tastylive’s daily show, “Bootstrapping in America” which has been dubbed “Bootstrapping in Canada” for the week, to share the story of their entrepreneurial journey. We have created our Bootstrapping in Canada Week in partnership with Ben Zlotnick, the CEO of Incubes, and with sponsorship from the Toronto Stock Exchange.
