Startup Canada podcast: Telecom veteran Jonathon Moody on increasing innovation in the industry

When it comes to celebrating our achievements and success, Canadians are known to be humble and modest. When winning the Top 40 Under 40 award by the Ottawa Chamber of Commerce and Ottawa Business Journal after years of challenges and hard work, Jonathon Moody wanted to soak it in.

“It’s really nice to be recognized,” said Moody.

Moody is the president and COO of Versature, a cloud-based telecommunication company that offers hosted PBX business communication solutions while disrupting Canada’s telecom industry.

He got his start in the Canadian tech sector in the 90s, and has since worked to help companies of all sizes implement tech-based business services in order to grow and increase productivity. Moody previously worked with companies such as Primus Telecommunications, TechSupport.ca, and the Ottawa Product Management Association.

In this week’s #StartupPodcast, host Rivers Corbett talks with Jonathon Moody about Canada’s telecommunications industry: where it is, where it’s going, and what needs to be done to increase innovation within it.
