There’s an article over at the Globe and Mail about the difficulty faced by Tech startups in Vancouver – apparently it can be a challenge to attract top talent.
Vancouver is awash in startups with several poised to go public, transforming British Columbia’s economy as they grow. But for Canada’s lifestyle capital to emerge as a world-class tech hub it needs to figure out how to persuade top executives to actually move there (because hey, Silicon Valley has mountains and ocean too)
Meanwhile there’s a local company called Telus that just lost a CEO because he didn’t want to live in Western Canada.
Can you believe that? Not wanting to live in BC?!
Boggles the mind.
