Hello Extreme Insiders!  

We are excited to announce our new feature Founders' Scrum, interviews by Lucy Ho. Each month Lucy, who runs operations here at EA, will conduct an exclusive interview with a founder from the Extreme community. The founders will discuss their early days, successes and what's in store for the future. Lucy kicks off this month's Founders' Scrum with Bryan Smith, the Co-Founder & CEO of ThinkData Works.

U.S president Donald Trump instilled his executive order, resulting in the Canadian technology community uniting in support of international entrepreneurs. Sunil Sharma, Chair of CABI, and, a company under EA's Start-up Visa Program, actively spoke out on the order. 

The Extreme community is stronger than ever and we are incredibly grateful. Make sure to connect with us at our lunch and learn on March 8th with Google and CultureCap, details below!
