Event description

Description

Toronto has earned its place as a top destination for foreign investments; in 2018 the US investment alone was around $1B. with 40% of Canada’s Head offices based in the TO region and 28,900 new tech jobs created in 2017, more than the Bay Area, Seattle and Washington DC combined, the competition for talent in general and tech talent in particular has never been more prevalent.

Many start-ups in Toronto are facing major challenges attracting and acquiring new talent, making it a lot more challenging to scale their businesses.

Sourcinc is hosting a discussion on the challenges start-ups face as they scale their business and the strategies they used to attract, engage and retain top talent.

Our speakers will discuss what worked, what didn’t and what they learned along the journey of scaling up. They will also explore how they were able to maintain their culture and how it evolved to allow for that growth.

The event will be hosted in partnership with Shopify and will be held at the Shopify Offices on 80 Spadina Ave in Toronto
