Last week I had the pleasure of being a part of AccelerateTO, working with some of Toronto's best technology entrepreneurs, influencers, and investors.
My favourite part of the day-long conference was the morning, which grouped 100+ attendees into smaller sets for close quarters workshops. I was involved in the “Getting Seriously Lean” workshop, which provided an understanding of lean startup, its key principles, and our real cases.
The way I see it, the role we play in these settings is that of peers. None of us are necessarily the first or only source of knowledge on these topics, but we’re fellow entrepreneurs sharing our tales from the trenches for everyone else’s benefit (I hope).
The storytellers at Eighteen Eighty used AccelerateTO as an opportunity to capture this very philosophy. I’ve embedded the film above, not only because they finally put me into one, but because it truly represents the hustle in every part of Toronto’s technology ecosystem.
