We had the opportunity to have a 1 on 1 with Bruce Croxon from Dragons Den (Canadian version of Shark Tank). Bruce is a high tech mogul that runs Round 13 a venture capital firm.

His values seem to align well with ours as we both have a love for music and the environment. Fingers crossed we can get his backing going forward.
Scott and I have just recently been attending Startup/Collab space events over the last couple week and already have been welcomed with open arms.

It was my sons kindergarten graduation day. My little guy won the "David Suzuki" award for his love of the environment.

So lucky that we live in such a great community.
