Chamath Palihapitiya says encouraging diversity is key to Canada's success as an innovation hub
The recent Waterloo Innovation Summit, an event co-organized by the University of Waterloo and Communitech, gave hundreds of entrepreneurs, academics, and policymakers a chance to network and hear from members of the tech community about the direction of innovation in Canada. Of the many talks that took place at the conference, one that resonated with many of the attendees was the final one, where Chamath Palihapitiya, the founder of the venture fund Social Capital, offered a deep and critical assessment of Canada’s position as a global innovation hub.
