Monthly Round Up – October 2016

Recall the last time you visited a new city. You likely stumbled upon neighorhoods with interesting shops and cafés with inviting displays. Each storefront provides just enough information to know whether you want to look inside. The open and closed signs let you know when you’re welcome to do so. MeetVibe is the mobile equivalent to these store windows for individuals who wish to socialize. Browse the profiles of those nearby to find people with shared interests who are “open” for new introductions instead of “closed” to only personal acquaintances.

Effective Networkers Build More Than Bridges

Our networks have become incredibly expansive. Today, we interact globally despite previous geographical barriers. It is a given that we can remain updated about an industry peer met at a conference in London or chat regularly with a relative in Morocco.

Technology in the information age has led to tremendous improvements for our social and business networking. It is, and will continue to be, a fantastic relationship enabler. And as our social expectations increase, technology is adapting to meet those demands.

Championing Tech Ecosystems Means Sustained Employment in Global Cities

Technology is the reality of the present and the way of the future. This presents a greater need for understanding tech’s role on our economies and societies. MeetVibe was honored to participate in the exclusive launch of the TechToronto Report, “How Technology is Changing Toronto Employment.”

Toronto’s tech ecosystem has skyrocketed since 2010. It has surpassed the general economy in terms of growth. As a testament to the pervasiveness and necessity of tech, there are more tech jobs within non-tech industries than there are in tech industries. Fostering the advancement of tech in Toronto and in other global cities will lead to greater diversification and decentralization – variables that are vital for a resilient economy.

Perhaps the best illustration of tech’s brilliance is the positive impact it stands to have on our social policy, civic action initiatives, and more, in addition to the overall economy. TechTO outlines policy recommendations that can contribute to the continued growth and dynamism of Toronto’s tech ecosystem, a city that is currently ranked fifth in the world for concentration of tech skills.
