Every Canadian tech business knows right now that it’s not business as usual. As the world combats a global pandemic, entrepreneurs grapple with the difficult task of surviving a black swan. Even the most prepared entrepreneurs have been forced to rip up their plans and start over.
No question is off the table in these unprecedented times.
Every entrepreneur, whether they’re building a small business or scaling a startup, can benefit from the lessons of those who have done it before. In this time of crisis, BetaKit is committed to supporting the Canadian tech ecosystem, so we’re hosting an AMA with a Canadian entrepreneur who has seen his share of black swans: Michael Hyatt.
Hyatt co-founded BlueCat Networks in 2000, in the heart of the dot-com bubble. The company survived, as it did following the 2008 financial crisis. If you have seen him live with BetaKit previously, you know Hyatt will not mince words when doling out advice to Canadian founders.
Hyatt has committed to BetaKit that no question is off the table in these unprecedented times, and we want to make sure your questions get answered. You can join us this Thursday and ask it live either on Twitter or Facebook, or post a comment to this article if you can’t make it (we’ll upload the full AMA to BetaKit afterwards). If you’d prefer to ask your question anonymously, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject: Black Swan.
