WeWork, coworking startup, to open 20 more Toronto locations

20 more – no that is not a typo. Even though the company only has 3 locations now in Toronto. This is mainly due to Toronto’s rapid growth as tech sector and attractive place to do business for startups.

Dave McLaughlin, general manager for the Northeast at WeWork said:

“The bottom line is, we don’t see any limit to demand. We’re definitely setting our sights high for the city and we think it is an amazing ecosystem for business.”

WeWork claims 98% occupancy rate at 2 of their 3 locations.

McLaughlin said the success is part due to very cool Drake designs at their offices, beer kegs, and easy to use app that connects tenants (people who rent their office space) with their office spaces.

“Part of what we sell, and part of what’s so inspiring for people is the sense that they like coming in to work. That’s hard to capture, but it’s real and it’s essential to what we do and why people love what we do.”

Future of Artificial Intelligence and its Impact on Business (Montreal Event)

Semeon Analytics will be hosting an event to bring together university students and young professionals across Montreal, to discuss the impact of Artificial Intelligence in the new world market, while also rolling out its own AI product, Digi Seer. The main focus of the event is to provide value to students interested in the field and to close the gap between working professionals in AI and the community. We have gathered the top AI experts to share their knowledge, experience and outline their vision of what the AI future is going to look like. The event is presented via a panel discussion format, to allow freedom of topics, and an opportunity for active audience involvement.
