We talked with Jeff Tomlin, the Chief Marketing Officer of Vendasta. Vendasta is a platform for selling digital solutions for local businesses and is one of Canada’s fastest-growing tech companies.
Last summer, Vendasta closed a $40 million dollar round of fundraising, the largest venture capital raise in the history of Saskatchewan tech. So needless to say, they were on a tear, fueling massive growth coming into 2020.
And then a global economic crisis happened. So we talked with Jeff about how this impacted the Vendasta rocketship, and how they’ve positioned themselves to continue growing. Vendasta sells digital solutions to small businesses in an age where small businesses are moving online faster than ever. So Jeff shared some incredible insights from their team on some of the trends that will emerge from the pandemic, and how they are working hard to help small businesses not only survive but thrive in 2020.
We’re having conversations with tech leaders on how they’re facing the COVID-19 crisis head-on, how startups and tech companies can approach the challenges ahead, and how the world changing before our eyes will present unique opportunities for startups and innovators.
