The KNBA, which works with more than 500 companies in the area, is using a decidedly tech term to describe its growth plan: scale.
Ottawa’s business leaders need to broaden the horizons of their talent searches and focus on the potential of prospective employees rather than their technical skills, local experts say

Petten was a founding member of Kanata’s L-Spark SaaS accelerator and served as its director of marketing for the past four years.
One of the other major developments for L-Spark has been the launch of SaaS North, which runs this year from Nov. 29-30.
