This morning, The Upside Foundation opened the Toronto Stock Exchange, to pay homage to the ultimate startup dream of taking your company public, and to celebrate the impact that those companies who have pledged to give back will have on our country.
Check out the official video here.
Our newest members from Wattpad (Allen Lau), Wealthsimple (Nora Jenkins), Overbond (Han Ryoo) were there to kick off our #150×150: Turn Equity into Charity campaign.
Steve Mills, Monique Rajaram and team from the Toronto Stock Exchange were excellent hosts, serving us a delicious breakfast and a bubbly toast.
