About this talk

Ecosystem is everything. Community is the framework that supports the ecosystem.

Waterloo Region has tought Canada’s startup community that when you focus on developing an ecosystem and leverage the strenghts of the community you will see positive result over a period of time. The focus on the startup ecosystem in Waterloo Region is not limited to tech companies raising money and putting logos on buildings downtown. Waterloo’s long term success is found in how the focus on ‘startup ecosystem’ is broader and includes the larger community and ecosystem.

Jesse Rodgers

My experience has ranged from leading ambitious projects in large education institutions to developing the first product in a small startup. With my previous role I lead the development of a large innovation hub and developed an investment fund for very early founders. Before that role I helped developed the Creative Destruction Lab that now has a massive global community contributing to the success of founders.
