A quick question on US sales - we're hoping to sell product to the USA, on Amazon.com, in USD. Amazon says we can't do this unless we have an account with an american bank (i.e. our USD account at RBC won't work). Does anyone know if this is true / have any experience in the matter?

Thanks!

Vidyard Fireside Chat with Prime Minister Trudeau
Howdy - we're hosting PM Justin Trudeau at Vidyard HQ for a fireside chat at ~9:30AM EST today.

We're going to be discussing: feminism, socks, handshakes, immigration policy, innovation spending (in no particular order) among other things.

Live-stream here!

Hi all! Question on startup finance.

My startup recently received a grant from Comic Relief and they require a financial procedures policy from us. Since I don't have prior experience with this – do you know of anyone who could help us with this, or any resources that I could possibly look into?

I spent a couple hours this afternoon talking strategy with Sarah Marion, from iNovia Capital (the top VC fund in Canada)

Generally I don't think entrepreneurs engage as much as they should with analysts and associates–there's this misconception that you should only deal with "decision-making partners". That's BS

Sarah had a think-piece published in VentureBeat this week: venturebeat.com/2017/01/17/chatbots-are-still-missing-one-important-ingredient/

I won't be surprised if she follows in Karam's footsteps and makes it to partner, if that's what she chooses to do: www.canadianbusiness.com/innovation/change-agent/karamdeep-nijjar-inovia-capital/

Incidentally, iNovia has an open Analyst position right now. You can reach out to Sarah about that, specifically, or do as I do and try to get her advice on your business: www.linkedin.com/in/sarahmarion/
