An exclusive opportunity to hear from one of Vancouver’s most prominent entrepreneurs.
We know it’s been a tough couple of weeks adjusting to the new normal. If you’re looking for something to do on Thursday evening while holed up at home, we’re hosting a free webinar with tech entrepreneur and author, Jeff Booth.
For more than 20 years, Jeff has been a visionary leader in the local technology sector, being named Person of the Year (2015) by the BC Technology Industry Association and one of the 100 Most Intriguing Entrepreneurs (2016) by Goldman Sachs. As the founding CEO of Vancouver-based e-commerce company BuildDirect, he led the company through the dot-com meltdown, the 2008 financial crisis, and many waves of technological disruption. In his new book, The Price of Tomorrow: Why Deflation is the Key to an Abundant Future, he offers a provocative thesis about the current state of our economies and what must happen to enable a brighter future in a technology-driven world.
