I grew up in Toronto.
I went to school at The University of Western Ontario.
Yesterday I flew home for the first time in almost two years. I got to see my mom and sister, one is off living in Florida now, and had a late dinner with all my best friends (still from high school).
Toronto keeps progressing.
I flew in on Porter Airlines (prop plane) from Boston and landed at the island airpot which was a fantastic little twist to enter Toronto. I was through customs in minutes and in meetings downtown in another 10. I dread Toronto’s Pearson airport and it’s a major reason I don’t like to make the trek.
For VC’s and bankers in Boston or Toronto wanting to get in and out of Toronto to do business, Porter air is a great service.
My gut from this brief visit back to my hometown is Toronto is primed to become a top five technology startup city. Expanding the island airport would be something that would make it happen yesterday.
