Camille McInnis knows the recipe for building a successful startup community.
“Having people both internal and external to your community who understand what you’re trying to do, and who can connect you with other resources are so important to the long term success of startup communities.”
McInnis is the Community Advisor for Startup Canada, an official Startup Canada Community, as well as the Acquisition and Marketing Lead for Square, a processing and business solutions provider based in Toronto. She has worked with companies such as Innovate Calgary, Tailsman Energy, and Breezingly, on everything from marketing and social media to events and programming.
In this week’s #StartupPodcast, McInnis offers tangible tips for building startup communities from the ground up to help local entrepreneurs reach their full potential.
