Hey All, Just wanted to quickly share our new app Shyft with all of you, it went live last night in the App and Play Stores and our team is pretty pumped. Shyft helps retail and service workers swap shifts, access and distribute schedules (through a high res photo) and message coworkers without sharing their phone number. Currently it's being used by 2500+ retail and restaurant locations across NA and dozens of new locations are joining daily. Feel free to share the link below with anyone who could benefit from the product, or to just support a young Canadian tech startup on the grind! Cheers! bnc.lt/FacebookShyft... See MoreSee Less
Andreas DuessBen, the sign-up link doesn't work unless you have the relevant email address. If you want to set up a public Slack channel, you will need to add members manually.

Ben BaldwinSorry if you're having trouble signing up for the Slack group. I'm actually relatively new to Slack, so I'm not sure how to let people join without permission. Does anyone know how I can let anyone join this channel, from any email address?
Boris MannMeanwhile in Canada, I'm still working on getting first cheques flowing and educating investors on digital with the Calacanis inspired Open Angel Canada www.openangel.ca
Speaking of which, if there are 2 - 3 investors who want to run this in Toronto, already have an initial sponsor lined up.
I have a huge list of amazing founders for confidential Forum groups! You are in good company. I’ve been asked about the various options for Forum groups (OneEleven ran a good session tonight), so I’m running a Google Hangout on Air this Thursday Nov 26th at 11am Eastern to:
1) Run through the general forum format for tech founders. I’ll teach you how to do it.
2) Cover the other options that you have, like OneEleven, AceTech, YPO (which I and many other founders consider the pinnacle of awesome, but it takes lots of time and costs $xx,xxx).
1- Ben’s general founder format (free, self-moderated) 2- OneEleven Forums (founders pay, professionally-moderated for 3 sessions) 3- AceTech Forums (founders pay, professionally-moderated) 4- EO (founders pay, self-moderated) 5- YPO (founders pay, self-moderated)
Decide which type of forum is best for you, or best for you to start. You can always be a part of multiple forums, if you can commit the time.

Alexandra T. GreenhillThis sounds great. I am a member to another org that is not on your list: Founders Network that was started in San Fran. Great place of support, advice, recommendations etc between tech founders... but have to pay to belong.
