Global Canadians: The Tech Sector's Secret Weapon
Play • 28 min

Over the last 153 years, millions of Canadians have spread to every corner of the world. We have been part of major global movements from the birth of Hollywood to the strategy behind modern day peacekeeping. We know that Canadians are going to play a key role in rebuilding the global economy as we look beyond the pandemic. Laura Buhler, Executive Director of the C100, an association of Canadian expats in the Valley that has helped build Canada's tech ecosystem, and Andre Charoo, General Partner of Maple VC and co-chair of the C100, join John Stackhouse on RBC Disruptors to discuss:

  • How we can leverage our population at home and abroad to create strategic opportunities and accelerate the growth of Canada’s tech companies.
  • What Canadian companies need to do to attract global talent. Pay must match ambition.
  • Why large corporations need to invest locally to develop a thriving ecosystem to compete on the global stage.
