I was invited to Estonia to speak in its capital at the Tallinn Music Week Creative Impact Conference. That's right - a major Estonian music festival also hosted a concurrent summit on society, creative economies and city building.
If the Toronto-K-W region is ever to fully reach its potential as a technology supercluster, functioning fluidly as a single, contiguous innovation sector, the ability to move human capital between the two nodes is essential, be it employees, investors or entrepreneurs.
Kitchener-Waterloo is already well established as a bastion of innovation. It's already actively adding places where people will want to live, work and play -- the three elements that define a cluster in a place of innovation. Toronto, on the other hand, has yet to truly establish a centralized, cohesive community where technological innovation can flourish.
