Grocery Gateway and Real Programming for Kids founders and owners are my guests to the 6 Mayors' discussion tonight on "what can Toronto do for business?"
It will be interesting as Ford, Thomson and Rossi have all had the pain of running their own businesses and know the rock face it can be.
When I listen to Stephen Tallevei, founder of Grocery Gateway, talk about his uphill struggles with getting his online grocery store to succeed, you know why being invited in as a private equity partner is a privileged partnership. Elliott Knox, RP4K, runs thousands of programming courses for teens each year and he describes his last year as similar to climbing to the top of Hamburger Hill and sent me the link to the movie.
We will be at The Gladstone Hotel, redone by the architect firm, Zeidlers, and it is unbelievably glamourous. Anyone can attend the talk and we must thank Globe & Mail for hosting such a worthy event.
