#StartupChats – Best Applications for Your Business

About This Event

Can you imagine going to work every day and not having your favourite apps at hand? Do you remember life before Slack, Hootsuite, Evernote, Square? Leveraging the use of technology through applications can be strategic, useful, and cost-effective. The trick is knowing and understanding each application to get the most out of your time and energy, while maintaining a positive ROI. What applications are available that support business growth? How can a business choose “the right fit” apps?

Join Startup Canada (@Startup_Canada) and AWS (@awscloud) on March 27th for a live #StartupChats on Twitter from 12pm – 1pm ET we’ll be discussing the best applications to use in your business. It’s hosted by Lyndon Johnson (@THINK_Lyndon), Founder of #Toronto based COMMS.BAR and we’ll be learning about the best applications for your business.
