This edition of ‘our stories_’ features Kevin Swan, VP of Corporate Development at Solium. He states that as long as emerging Canadian high-growth companies continue to disrupt themselves, Canada has a chance to build the necessary ‘anchor’ tenants in the startup ecosytem.

Kevin shares how important it is to have that grit and “insatiable desire to continue winning”, as the default of any tech company is failure.
