Big news flash in the Canadian tech scene. Mark Evans – one of Canada’s best read bloggers and one of my mesh conference co-founders – has crossed over from journalism to running a start-up.
Earlier this week b5 Media received $2 Million in venture financing from J.L. Albright and Brightspark. Getting Mark to join the team will only enhance their credibility. Having worked closely with Mark in building mesh, I can tell you that Mark brings some intangibles to the table that would benefit any start-up. He’s energetic, and totally enthusiastic about what he does. He is also forthright and honest – important qualities I’d want in any team I would build. Mark also brings experience to the team as he’s left journalism to run a start-up before.
Good luck Mark – I’ll be rooting for you.
