CanCon Podcast Ep. 58: Why does Canadian tech celebrate IPOs but hate acquisitions?

michael hyatt

This week we’re doing something a little different, as the CanCon podcast brings you its very own Ask Me Anything. Douglas Soltys, BetaKit Editor in Chief, asked the Twitterverse to provide their most pressing Canadian tech questions so the team could deliver the goods.

Tune in as CanCon’s BetaKit crew – Jessica Galang, BetaKit News Editor, and Douglas Soltys, BetaKit Editor in Chief – talk about the tension between IPOs and acquisitions, shoutout some notable leading women in Canada, and give hot takes on their favorite Canadian tech.

Have some hot takes? Maybe you want to suggest something for a future podcast! Perhaps you have a burning question that you didn’t get in in time for the AMA. 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.
