In a recent article in the Financial Post, author Quentin Casey discussed how the talent in Waterloo, Ontario is attracting Silicon Valley startups such as San Francisco-based Everalbum to the region.

Here are five illuminating points on the subject of talent that Andrew Dudum, Everalbum's co-founder makes in the article:

  2. San Francisco's talent pool is deep, but it's spread over many companies and startups…Silicon Valley tech workers hop often between gigs.
  3. Talent in the Waterloo region is world-class and less inclined to depart after a few months.
  4. The talent in Waterloo is just as good as the talent in San Francisco and in the Valley - from a design standpoint, from an engineering standpoint - on all fronts.

  5. "If you can find a high concentration of amazing people, you have a really good shot at building something great."
