After nearly 20 years in the startup scene, Mark MacLeod has witnessed first-hand how Canada’s transforming into a bustling hub of tech and innovation. His experiences in helping founders fund, grow, and exit their companies, while building mutually-beneficial relationships across borders and oceans, has led him to become a notable figure in the startup scene with a razor sharp view of the Canadian entrepreneurship ecosystem.
“I think the word’s out that Canada is a great place to build a software business.”
MacLeod is the founder of SurePath Capital, a strategic financial advisory company for the emerging leaders in SaaS, ecommerce and SMB software. From funding to exits, Mark supports visionaries on their path to success.
In this week’s #StartupPodcast, host Rivers Corbett talks to Mark MacLeod about the realities of exiting your startup and how Canada’s becoming the hottest place to start and grow your tech company.
