This was first presented at the Best of TechTO 2017 at Toronto City Hall.
On International Women’s Day, tech nice-guy Ben Zifkin dropped by Venture for Canada’s Scale-Up Speaker Series — an event with BDC Capital featuring entrepreneurs running high-growth companies — to share his entrepreneurship story.
Since TechTO hosted its first meetup in November 2014, the event has exploded into one of the city’s must-attend tech events (BetaKit is a proud media sponsor!).
Since Toronto-based Hubba founder Ben Zifkin launched his company in 2012, the plan has always been to IPO in 2020. In fact, he specifically came back to Toronto after spending four years in London, calling the lack of a strong IPO story in Toronto “embarrassing.”
