CanCon Podcast Ep. 73: Who are the founder-friendly VCs? What about women-friendly VCs?

Binary Capital

This past week, the team at BetaKit hosted an invite-only tech event in Toronto called BetaKit 150 to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday from the perspective of tech innovation. In attendance were upwards of 300 people who hold Canadian tech near and dear to their hearts. This week on the CanCon podcast, Erin Bury, Managing Director of Eighty-Eight, joins Douglas Soltys, BetaKit Editor in Chief, to discuss how the event played out and the day’s overall content (that will be shared in a later episode of CanCon).

As a follow up to the event and because the CanCon podcast never tires of Canadian content, Douglas does a 1-on-1 with the internet’s questions about Canadian tech.

Have some hot takes on the topics that we covered? Maybe you want to suggest something for a future podcast! Perhaps you have a burning question about something you read in tech news that we didn’t cover. Email us, post a comment below with the answer or question, or better yet, rate CanCon 5-stars on iTunes and post your thoughts there.
