Will Young Zappos Labs

Graduating from UBC in 1999, Young first found work through an agency before making the switch to the startup scene. In this interview clip with Rob Woodbridge of UNTETHER.tv, Young discusses how friends back home are making Valley inroads through freelance work, and the potential stigmas around sponsoring Canadians only to have them jet for greener pastures.
