Solving For Talent In the Innovation Economy

February 17, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


To compete for talent and scale their ideas, our burgeoning tech leaders need to get creative. One potential solution is the federal Start-up Visa Program, which injects foreign entrepreneurs into the Canadian innovation ecosystem. Does this type of program feed into the talent pool while also building viable ventures that remain here in Canada? All of it is up for debate.

At Solving For Talent In the Innovation Economy happening THIS THURSDAY at 12 pm, Spark Centre‘s President and CEO Sherry Colbourne will join Spark Centre clients Longan Vision and Kevares on a panel alongside Shane Flynn, Director of Talent Development at DMZ, Saima Chaudhry, Outreach officer, Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada and CBC’s Manjula Selvarajah to discuss ways in which Canada can overcome the talent crunch and bolster its innovation pipeline.
