CanCon Podcast Ep. 10: Federal Budget Post-Mortem

justin trudeau

Maturation is a double-edged sword. In one context – the maturation of Canada’s tech economy – it can mean great things: jobs, innovation, big budgets and big exits. In another – Netflix’s global expansion or Apple’s product lineup – it can mean frustrating compromises or uninspired announcements. When tech matures, it doesn’t necessarily get better; sometimes it just gets more complicated.

Tune in as the CanCon podcast team – Erin Bury, Managing Director of 88 Creative (and former BetaKit Managing Editor), Patrick O’Rourke, Senior Editor of MobileSyrup, and Rob Kenedi, TWG’s Entrepreneur in Residence and host of the amazing #smallrooms podcast – evaluates the federal government’s first budget, and the maturation of Apple and Netflix’s product offering.
