#StartupChats | Building Financial Resilience to Scale

About This Event

As epicenters of innovation, startups flourish new ideas, and put these ideas to the test of the market for us. However, as much as they present more opportunities, they can be much more vulnerable to the changes in general economic climates. Financial resilience of the startups leads to the resilience of our innovation culture. In this episode, we will talk about how entrepreneurs can build financially resilient startups.

Join Startup Canada (@Startup_Canada) and Mastercard (@MastercardCAnws) on May 16 for a live #StartupChats on Twitter from 12pm – 1pm ET. Hosted by Kylie Woods, the Founder & CEO of Calgary-based Chic Geek (@kywoods_), we’ll be learning about Building Financial Resilience to Scale.
