    EP-3: A case study of the startup ecosystem of Kingston, Canada- a small city punching above its weight

    In this episode, we talk with our startup ecosystem partners in Kingston, Canada. Andrew Bacchus from Kingston Economic Development Corporation and David Hyndman that used to work at Queen’s University. Both share their valuable insights on what makes Kingston unique and so favorable for startup founders. This episode is not only highly informative but inspiring as well. 
     
    Kingston, a relatively small city located between bigger startup hubs, offers world-class infrastructure, human capital, and market access, minus the stress of a big city. Andrew and David talk about recent developments and interesting opportunities that attract international attention. They present the challenges of building Kingston’s startup ecosystem and how they managed to leverage them.
