We definitely picked a great week to visit Calgary as it was filled with events tailored to its growing start-up scene.
After spending the day talking to entrepreneurs and the people who foster Calgary’s start-up ecosystem every day, we hosted a sold-out event at the AcceleratorYYC event. Christian MacLean, Pat Lor, and Lori Stewart joined Jason Bailey to share their views on what it takes to build a start-up. Here are some of the insights that were shared on Twitter:
“@growlabs says canadian entrepreneurs need to b more aggressive… b polite & apologetic in traffic!”
“Chief Calgarian Rockstar Patrick Lor says lots of talking & not enuff doing @growlabs#justdoit“
“Patrick Lor says very few ppl can raise a company alone… find a cofounder with complimentary skillsets”
A big shout-out and thanks to the teams at AcceleratorYYC, Startup Calgary, and the awesome panel.
