Startup “ecosystems” in Canada are doing well but…

Personally, I think that we have a talent challenge. Not in the sense that we don’t have enough smart people up here, we do. Our universities are first class and I would put up any engineering grad from Canada against their counterparts from the top schools in the US. However, the talent is raw and there is a lack of concentrated startup experience in our eco-systems. It is hard for startups in Canada to find someone who had a significant role in building a previous startup. This is especially true in areas of marketing, product development, sales and even engineers who are familiar with the current web technologies (Ruby, Python, Javascript, etc.).
