Come out to the first Troughs and Triumphs event at Influitive, inspired by the great off the record dinner chats of experienced SaaS leaders popular in Silicon Valley. We have Steven Woods, my co-founder at Eloqua and now co-founder/CTO of Nudge, Razor Suleman, founder/CEO from Achievers, and Ashira Lapin, SVP of People and Culture from Wave discussing how they stared down the abyss and built incredible high growth, valuable companies. I'm going to moderate and ferret out how to get through the trough from product, go-to-market and culture/leadership perspectives.

Limited seats available to RSVP soon at [email protected] - event is next week April 3.

Which Canadian tech startups do you see being talked about in Asia ?

Tonight I found myself casually surfing through India's largest read newspaper's website at midnight today - and here it is - people talking about Wattpad. Regular Indians writing massively long and interesting Bollywood-inspired stories on Wattpad, and here is India's largest English language newspaper covering it.

(Not linking the story here because it is about Bollywood and not relevant otherwise - just a snippet here..)
