Does anyone have a great email marketing consultant they could recommend?
I need advice on email deliverability. As context, we send a weekly email to a list of 6,000 or so contacts each week on behalf of our customers. We use Mail Gun (from RackSpace) and have had a pretty consistent deliverability rating for the last year. Then all of a sudden, two weeks ago, our deliverability fell off a cliff. It appears we have been blocked for some reason even though our unsubscribe rate is low. All of us here are stumped and when we talk to Mail Gun, they say everything appears to be set up correctly.
We obviously need to figure out a) what went wrong and b) how we structure things to ensure it doesn’t happen again.
Do you know anyone we could hire on a contract basis to help us out? ... See MoreSee Less
Toronto is showing signs of the city coming into its own as a global technology hub. More firms are making the move to Hogtown, and the city is also turning out its fair share of hometown heroes when it comes to successful tech companies. So, what is making Toronto such a coveted destination for tec...
Genia Miinkothey're both right.

Fabian BoehmConsidering recent investments of "major banks" into Fintech startups, I would agree more with the first article. However, as Genia stated this whole industry is very complex and diverse and therefore generalizations are not possible.

According to Facebook, it's been a year since Trudeau won the election and the Globe published this letter congratulating him and asking for his support of the entrepreneurial community. How is he doing so far?
One positive is that his government backed off the stock option taxation plan after hearing out the startup community. Other examples, positive or negative? ... See MoreSee Less
Matt RobertsI'd give credit to Navdeep Bains for reaching out to the community and getting feedback before any major policy decisions. I think its still early innings on what we'll see come down the pipe.

Haseeb AwanLiberal government have presented Canada as a great brand. After what's going on across the border, Canada is a great candidate to attract international talent and capital.

Ben ZifkinHappy to give credit to being malleable enough to back off of policy because of feedback but the stock option thing always annoyed me. You don't get a gold star for coming up with a bad idea and then look like a hero when you don't enact it. It took a lot of unnecessary energy - and likely future bargaining leverage - from a bunch of people in this community to get them to change it. (Thanks to all of you who took on that fight on our behalf)
That was a just a side rant on one topic. On a whole, I think we are very lucky that this government is paying attention and genuinely caring on how to make things better. Very appreciative of that. It will drive us even more forward as the best country in the world to live and start a technology company.
Fabian BoehmComing from the Berlin startup scene and having worked closely with the German Startup Association for a few years to strengthen German and Canadian startup ecosystem ties, I can add to this that the very fact that Trudeau has been elected has raised a lot of positive awareness for Canada and has led to also startups to look more closely at this country that was often overshadowed by "the valley". My business is focused on Canadian and German companies and I have seen an increase in interested ever since the election: www.digitaldackel.ca That being said, the recent trade deal negotiations have not been super helpful to the transatlantic relationship.
