Hello fellow Londoners, my name is Blake and I’m the new Digital Media Business Analyst here at TechAlliance. I am excited to be a part of a team that is so dedicated to helping the London tech community grow. London is an amazing city and my goal is to help it become used as a metonym for the Canadian high-tech sector.
I have been involved in entrepreneurship for all of my life. In 2008, I used my interest in multi-media to establish a venture called Picture It Studios, where I created wedding and anniversary photomontages for my clients. The experience of operating my own business was largely made possible through the Ministry of Research and Innovation’s Summer Company program, which offered me the training and funding to succeed as an entrepreneur.
My passion in entrepreneurship led me to Western’s BMOS program and subsequently to pursue my HBA degree at The Richard Ivey School of Business where in my fourth year I specialized in entrepreneurship through their Entrepreneurship Certificate Program.
I am excited to immerse myself in the London community and I look forward to learning about all the great tech startups happening around the city!
My later blog posts will cover current tech trends and how they affect the community as a whole. My objective is to provide content that is entertaining, but at the same time relevant to developing your business.
