As Canadian tech enters a hopeful summer, the BetaKit Podcast is bringing the heat with another listener AMA episode.
“Can we expect that Canadian tech will start paying talent what they’re worth?”
– Listener question
And like AMA episodes past, BetaKit Podcast listeners show exactly how much they care by presenting us with a series of difficult questions we can only hope to not get too wrong. On the docket this week: under-the-radar unicorns, what’s happening in cleantech and healthtech, and employee mental health. Oh, and the big question about Canadian tech salaries, as the ecosystem begins to feel the effects of remote-work arbitrage from US companies.
Producer Kattie Laur joins Rob Kenedi and me to ponder whether or not Canadian tech can pay anything more than “peanuts” compared to our friends to the south. Let’s dig in.
