  4. Defrosting The Great White North's Startup Ecosystem

    The Canadian tech ecosystem has suffered in silence. Not unlike that guy in the ED commercials, it's ashamed of failures, but equally afraid of a short-lived success.

  5. PandoDaily Launches New Advice Column "Dear Startup Genius"

    I have met entrepreneurs all over the world who told me they visit tech blogs for one major reason: to read stories about other founders in order to infer advice about a problem they themselves were having.

Or maybe it was knowing what angel investors they could trust.

    No sooner does a professional worker get laid off or start to think about looking for a new job than can they be expected to utter the phrase, “Time to update my LinkedIn profile.” The professional social network has become the official playing field of job seekers and recruiters alike.
