Hi all - I'm in San Francisco for the next few months and would love to connect with any Canadian expats from this group living there. I'm also looking for drop in desk space if anyone has any suggestions or spare desks. And finally, if any of you fly frequently between Canada and the Bay Area for work, I welcome you to check out my company, Trippeo, as we have a ton of negotiated rates with airlines (and we give 2x the points for Aeroplan and United). ...

Michael MahonC100 does a monthly Canadians in Tech Meetup. Next one is Feb 10. There's also a hockey game on Feb 29. Check out www.thec100.org/events/. For workspace, you can check out WeWork (where C100 is located... they actually have a Canada House space there which you can access if you are a MaRS, Velocity or Communitech company) or RocketSpace. Longer term, you might want to check out the CTA program offered by the Trade Commissioner Service; their program includes workspace (tradecommissioner.gc.ca/world-monde/cta-atc.aspx?lang=eng). As a general rule, the Trade Commissioners in the Valley are very helpful and it is worth connecting with the Consulate (Dina or Mike).

Boris MannI can share a list I helped curate for BC TECH Summit. But gotta say Series A ready companies are relatively thin on the ground.

Good morning! I'm looking to connect with female entrepreneurs, founders, angels, investors or any female with a strong voice in this community. I'm working on a business idea and am potentially looking for a co-founder, but more importantly would love the feedback of some of these women.

Please PM me, connect me, link me whatever is easiest. Thanks. :)
