Lazaridis Institute Scale-Up Tour (June 18th, Ottawa): Join Us as Our Guest!

Dear Community members,

The Lazaridis Institute Scale-Up Tour will be stopping in Ottawa on Monday June 18th as part of the Institute’s cross Canada meet ups with the tech community and innovation leaders.

CATAAlliance is a supporter and we are inviting you to join us in Ottawa where Chris Yeh  (see bio below) will be presenting his ever-growing theory of Blitzscaling followed by a networking reception with drinks, food and an opportunity to connect with your local tech ecosystem.

Note that the Lazaridis Institute is looking for Canada’s most promising technology companies to join the third cohort of the Lazaridis Scale-Up Program.  Whether some companies are ready to scale now, or in the future, they would love to meet with them and discuss ways which they can support their growth!  

Below is the invitation link with registration details, we hope to see you there!



Chris writes about a broad range of topics, with special focus on entrepreneurship and startups. He is the co-author, along with friends Reid Hoffman and Ben Casnocha, of the New York Times best-seller, “The Alliance: Managing Talent in the Networked Age.” His work has appeared in publications such as Harvard Business Review and TechCrunch.

Yeh is a General Partner at Wasabi Ventures Global, which brings the startup and scaleup lessons of Silicon Valley to other ecosystems around the world. He is also a General Partner at the Women’s Startup Lab Fund, helping great women entrepreneurs change the world. He earned two Bachelor’s degrees with distinction from Standford University and an MBA from Harvard Business School, where he was a Baker Scholar.

Yours sincerely,

John Reid, CEO,  CATAAlliance
