Today, you’re in for a historic moment on the Startup Canada Podcast – Cyprian Szalankiewicz, COO and Co-Founder of Startup Canada is on the show for our host of four years Rivers Corbett’s FINAL episode.
Since launching Startup Canada nearly 10 years ago, Cyprian has played an integral part in creating a flagship brand for Canadian Entrepreneurs with Startup Canada.
Cyprian has created an enduring legacy, impacting the lives of tens of thousands of entrepreneurs, and generating dozens of new jobs as the Co-Founder and COO of two national non-profit organizations in Canada and the UK – Startup Canada and NACUE years earlier. These organizations have collectively raised more than $50M in funding and created more than 100 jobs, directly impacting more than 300,000 individuals and representing more than 3.5 million entrepreneurs.
Cyprian has been behind the visuals, shows, and digital content of Startup Canada – everything from defining brand integrity, conceptualizing, developing, produced and secured financing for the Startup Canada awards, an awards program recognizing leading innovators and entrepreneurs through regional and national galas and national broadcasts engaging audiences — recognized by CBC as the ‘Oscars of Canadian Entrepreneurship.’
In this week’s episode of the #StartupCanadaPodcast, Rivers and Cyprian discuss building a truly Canadian brand for entrepreneurs, and the journey that has been Startup Canada.
