Karen Schulman DupuisFITC is pretty amazing. The different perspectives not being entirely tech focused is also a great way to bring out that beginner's mind.

Paul MarekC2 Montreal has a great format - booking one-on-one meetings with people you need to talk to. But monthly techTO meetups here in Toronto is always good for fun and networking.

Are there any agencies out there that work with smaller startups on multi-channel paid digital ad campaigns (LinkedIn, Twitter, FB)? A friend is looking for a reco. He has a marketing team of one, so likely smaller than most agencies would work with. ... See MoreSee Less

Divyesh MistryIt's because everyone loves to exploit marketers and the rest of us who aren't developers by not actually offering to pay us.

Colin SampaleanuThis is pretty bad and just wrong. Similar in spirit to all the ads looking for "rockstar" developers to fill posts doing some sort of routine work at mediocre pay.

Ahmad IqbalCompanies only need a growth hacker when they have clear and proven product market fit. And when they have that kind of product market fit they should be able to hire the right people you need full time.

Daniel BarankinI'm part of a lot of startup groups: from London, to Tel-Aviv, to Bangalore— somehow Toronto is the only group that consistently brings down its own people. As far as I can see, Swiggle is a small company (2 employees on LinkedIn) offering a paid internship to whoever might be interested. If the opportunity isn't for you, don't apply. There's no reason that anyone at Swiggle should lose sleep over their decision to hire a marketing intern. If we want to build a world class ecosystem, we can do without the moral outrage.
