CanCon Podcast Ep. 102: Why Tim Cook’s a “big fan” of Shopify

Tim Cook Apple and Tobias Lutke Shopify

Tim Cook is a big fan of Shopify! Toronto made the shortlist for Amazon’s second headquarters. The New York Times is writing about Canadian tech (again)!

Canada is awash in positive PR… spun mostly by US-based tech giants hoping to use it for leverage. So why do we care about the attention, and how can we use it to our benefit?

Speaking of attention, Bell is currently swimming in it, thanks to its second security breach of customer data in the last year. But while we know something bad happened… well, that’s all we know. Is that enough?

Join us as the CanCon crew – Matt Roberts, Partner at ScaleUP Ventures; Patrick O’Rourke, MobileSyrup Senior Editor; and Douglas Soltys, BetaKit Editor-in-Chief – forgets what the ‘N’ in FANG stands for (it’s Netflix!).
