Wow - Toronto is on fire when it comes to start-uppy folks. A random coffee house event today drew in several pre-seed founders at various stages of their idea lifecycle - from first-time entrepreneurs, to serial successful entrepreneurs, to even a "reformed" VC. Amazing to see so much talent, and people are really gunning for the big ideas. I counted 5 separate billion-dollar ideas on the table with folks passionate enough to brave the cold for it and humble enough to come out to learn and share.

I think we barely had enough space - I love this format of a small 8-10 person peer group exchanging ideas, constructively criticizing and finding new ways to collaborate with each other. Looking to organize something similar in Montreal and Ottawa over the next few weeks to meet pre-seed founders there - anybody interested in that, please comment here.

Tea NicolaWe use 2 sole proprietors for SRED and reporting and a firm only for taxes and audited financial statements. SRED is % of claim and CFO is hourly. I love them both, easy to deal with, very little overhead and cost effective.
