#CollisionConf AMA: a tech downturn vibe check

Collision 2022
Our voices may have dropped a few octaves.

This podcast was recorded at 10 pm on day three of Collision.

“So are you saying that Canadian tech is under-appreciated?”

As you might tell from the sound of our voices, if not our recording time, it was a draining week navigating the return of IRL tech events as 35,000 people from around the world descended upon Toronto.

So, in the spirit of meaningful connections, we turned to our listeners for a special Collision edition of our monthly AMA episodes. On this episode, you’ll find us answering listener questions about: the mood surrounding the current tech downturn, cool tech we saw at the conference, and the ROI of IRL events for the ecosystem.

One special note: it was truly heartening to run into so many listeners of the BetaKit Podcast at Collision and hear directly how much you’ve been enjoying recent episodes. We’ll do our best to keep the quality of guests and conversation high throughout the second half of the year.
