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. The Ottawa startup scene is a dynamic and interconnected group of young social entrepreneurs that have vision and drive second to none. People go out of their way to make everyone feel welcomed and included in their amazing network they have grown organically over the years. They have many industry contacts and can provide some guidance/mentoring that will only improve your chances of succeeding. It is truly a team vibe where everyone helps everyone with ideas, networking and positive re-enforcement.
This week we were invited to the Startup Canada Ottawa awards banquet and plan on going to Startup Canada on the hill (October 19). I am told this is the event of the year to celebrate entrepreneurs in action with 2000+ in attendance. Cant wait to continue to be inspired, educated and have fun along this journey.
