What's It About?

The founder journey is not smooth sailing – ask any founder, and they will recall those first moments of realizing how tough the path ahead of them was. This episode calls out the elephant in the room, the ghost of all hurdles a founder faces in their journey to get their company and product off the ground: the mental gymnastics. Every founder has hit “rock bottom” moments (yes, plural!) -- be it trying to design the perfect prototype to bring to market, hitting yet another “no” in the search for investors, sacrificing physical health for the sake of “hustle culture” or fighting imposter syndrome throughout the journey. This conversation will reflect on the tough moments new founders will evidently face with founders who have been there, offering candid reflections of their own experiences and how you can set yourself up with coping strategies + community support.

About Next in Tech

The Canadian tech industry is booming – if you’ve ever dreamed about being a founder, there has never been a better time to jump in. But where do you start? How can you find your place in the ecosystem, and connect with people also navigating the beginnings of their founder journey? Next in Tech explores the “firsts” of the founder journey, told through the stories of founders currently walking through the process themselves. Hear the stories of “firsts” every founder has experienced while building, growing and learning together with peers.
