Canadian Startups Limit Their Own Potential by Dreaming Small. Let's Change That, Shall We? - Techvibes.com

Canadian Startups Limit Their Own Potential by Dreaming Small. Let's Change That, Shall We? - Techvibes.com | Give StartUps A Chance | Scoop.it

One of my favourite books is "Why Mexicans Don't Drink Molson" by Campbell Mandel.

The premise is simple: Canada has all the makings of a global leader, yet chooses to be a loser. For example, why is it that Mexico, a country with very little fresh water or barley relative to Canada, produces four times as much beer?

 

Shirley A Williams's insight:

This is not the first time I have heard this. In fact I have been engaged a multiple conversations about this very topic. This post succinctly shines a light on why Canadian Tech startups are lagging behind. Canadian's are not hungry enough and hence don't dream big enough. I loved the passion behind this piece.

Want to get your Kickstarter campaign funded in less than a week? Here are a few tips to help you meet your crowdfunding goals quickly.Crowdfunding has become an increasingly popular way for small businesses to raise startup funds. Some campaigns on platforms like Kickstarter end up failing, leading to disappointed backers and even more disappointed entrepreneurs.

Within nine hours, the project had raised $10,000, and by the second day of its 45-day campaign, Apollo Pens had already met its $30,000 goal. It wasn't sheer luck that brought Kumar's project the overwhelming support it received. The entrepreneur and his co-founder put in a lot of hard work and preparation to help ensure their Kickstarter success.
