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).

Ryan LazanisHey Ardash. Good to know about the 2X points! We still need to connect to touch base regarding updates on Trippeo. Curious to know how it's going. Ryan from Xen Accounting.

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.

Michael MahonWould be nice to know which VC firm... really helps when considering who to suggest, as they all have different areas of focus, etc. No need for secrecy, the minute they land and start meeting it will be known to all!

Tom WilliamsMichael. They are mobile-focused including software-enabled hardware. The reason I'm not mentioning by name is to avoid the entrepreneurial hustle of "hey, I here you're in town" type emails.
