Canada has a growing love affair with startups. Look around any city in the country, and it's easy to see why.
Any entrepreneur will tell you that launching a new venture is exciting. As a former entrepreneur myself, I've had the privilege of working with hundreds of bright-eyed, aspiring industry leaders as they take those critical first steps. It is an energizing experience and one that is filled with promise.
But creating significant value following the launch of a startup is riddled with challenges - and they are often several orders of magnitude greater than those associated with starting a new venture. These stumbling blocks have far-reaching impact. In Canada, too many companies 'start up' and stagnate and never 'scale up.'
