I am excited to be driving over to Waterloo for Start-up Camp. Momentum for new business and ideas seems to keep growing all over Ontario/Quebec. I remember after leaving the first Mesh thinking that something significant is happening among us geeks. Mesh 3 is coming up soon and I have as much anticipation for it this year as last year. Between events like these, unconferences like barcamp and democamp, and many of us choosing to cowork during the week, the community is becoming strong.
One dream would be that we eventually come together in some form like a Y-Combinator or Techstars group to be able to make more happen. Many of us have been talking about this as angel investors and entrepreneurs but have not landed on the right thing yet. Maybe it is just because we are all up to our eyes in our own start-ups…but I will keep dreaming.
