I’m in Waterloo (Ontario, no French jokes, please) to give an Art of the Start speech for Communitech. I just found out that the event is open to the public and free.
The speech is on Friday, October 6th at 11:00 am in Fed Hall on the University of Waterloo campus. Click here to register. I hope you can make it.

I have a commitment for tomorrow AM… too bad because I live here in Waterloo
Guy, hockey buff that you are… you likely know that RIM founder (and Waterloo resident) Jim Ballsillie just made a $175 million offer to buy the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Definitely the highlight of the week. Can’t wait for tomorrow :)
I’m in! :-)

You are in Hockey Heaven Guy, have a great time.
Can’t wait. I’ll be the guy with the start up.
Thanks for letting us know. If it hadn’t been too far to drive respectively fly, I would have joined you for your speech. Let us know if you will be in Germany one day :-)
Wow! Spam-bot succeeded!
Hope you took your gear – probably some great shinny (that’s pickup hockey for those who don’t know) around Waterloo right now.
After the past week I read the title of the post I really thought it was our turn to get the “Top 10 Quotes”.
Enjoy your visit.
The European Waterloo is in Belgium, not France :-)
But it’s where Napoleon lost, right? And Napoleon was French, right?
Guy, a suggestion if I may:
Stay in Canada; I know I would.

Your talk in Waterloo today was DICEE.
You mentioned to be prepared to give something away for trial purposes. So that being said, I would like to take your MAC laptop for a 30 day test drive if you don’t mind.
Hi Guy – caught your speech today in Waterloo and thought it was great. I had read your book and was really just attending to get insights beyond those on paper.
There was a question that I was going to ask, but Iain had to cut things short … so let me ask it here.
What kind of startups is Garage Technology Ventures looking to fund? In your speech you made several allusions to social networking as an area of interest …
Thanks for the feedback. We’re looking for West Coast software, IT, ecomerce, and other consumer-facing deals. Social networking would be in this list.
Garage Canada out of Montreal makes the Canadian investments.
Any video of this presentation?
Sorry, no, but it’s very similar to the one I did for TIE that’s on this blog.
Hello Guy, Your talk was excellent! I hope you stop by again in the future. Kalu Kalu Software Engineering University of Waterloo
I was there when Guy said “Venture Capital is like crack”! ;-)
You and 50,000 others too! :-)
Guy, or is now Gee…like the famous LeFleur.
When are you going to make it out to BC for a speech.
Our tech and VC zone is quite healthy.
No 2 line passes though…
No plans so far. I’ll post an announcement if/when I do.
Welcome back to the great white north.
Glad you could return.
We’d like to invite you to be our honorary ambassador for the Canadian Tech Mob (a gang of tech guys and gals in Canada and around the world who think Canada is underrated.)
So what do you think, Mr. Ambassador?
Agh! I just visited your blog today! I missed it by one day! I’m so peeved! Well I hope you’re having a good time in Canada Guy, I know how you love hockey! Oh and sorry about all the exclamations!!!
Hey Guy, will you make the video available somewhere?
Guy : Napoleon was NO French. He was Corsican ;-)
