Sean Wise is someone I got to know during my Tercina startup days when we were pitching our Enboard product idea to the now-defunct Excelerator tech incubator at U of T’s Innovartions Foundation. Well look what he’s up to now.
Some of you will recall my recent ideas on extending on DemoCamp’s success with a startup pitch contest with seed money as a prize to the winning idea…my working title was “DemoCamp: Monster Island”. Well, it looks like Sean and others have taken up the challenge with a Canadian version of the BBC’s Dragon’s Den franchise on CBC.
Some excitement around startups and an injection of dynamism in the community are definitely needed and appreciated. I look forward to watching and hope to see some familiar faces. Auditions are this Saturday, June 24th, so polish your pitch and show up for the call.
