How Ada and Benevity became Canadian tech unicorns

SAAS NORTH Ada and Benevity Unicorns panel
Does mo' money truly mean mo' problems?

This week, we have another great conversation recorded with Canadian tech leaders live from SAAS NORTH.

“There’s now a new premium on company culture that didn’t exist before.”

The focus of this episode of the BetaKit Podcast is unicorns, and two in particular: Toronto-based Ada, and Calgary-based Benevity. Both had unique roads on their respective journies to a billion-dollar valuation, which are recapped in detail on this episode.

But the conversation eventually turns its focus from the past to the future: what exactly do Canadian tech unicorns think about at night? It seems as though concerns about scaling, talent, and culture don’t exactly disappear the higher you climb the startup mountain. Does mo’ money truly mean mo’ problems?

Let’s dig in.
