WTH? Less than 60 Days to Web Summit 2020

hello from the hyper room
Hi,
Hope you are doing well - if not please reply and let me know what’s up.
I’m still in Vancouver waiting for an opportune time to visit Asia but until then there are a handful of things I’ve been up to that I wanted to share with you:

Podcasts
Fresh new episode up now!
Fresh new episode up now!
I am a one-man podcast studio with 3 weekly shows! I love talking to interesting people and sharing these conversations with you while you are at the gym, driving (somewhere) or cleaning the dishes:
Sandwich Society - is my digital entertainment podcast - so it’s all focused on video games, VR/AR, streaming, The Metaverse. My passions with tech and entertainment collide here. If you like Netflix or Nintendo this is for you.
RISE Offstage - I’m hosting roundtables on interesting tech topics with tech leaders around Asia as we lead towards RISE 2021. First episode is up now. If you want to keep up on Asia this is for you.
The Hyper Room - is my pop culture podcast where I interview creative people that make comics, games, toys and cartoons. If you like Transformers or The Avengers this is for you.
Web Summit 2020
Collison from Home was a huge success. The 2-screen platform the team built is incredible and if you’re thinking it’s a big Zoom room, you’ve not seen anything like it before! We welcoming 100,000 Web Summit attendees online in December and Captain America himself Chris Evans as well as tech superstars like Eric Yuan, Drew Houston, Jimmy Wales and CEO’s of Magic Leap, Birchbox, Lego and more. Tickets here. Accelerator leads and angel investors reading this hit reply.
Startbase Canada + Founder Institute Vancouver
I won’t mince words: Canada wants your startup! So, I’ve beta-launched the new Startbase Canada platform (and a Slack channel reply for invite) in conjunction of me joining Founder Institute Vancouver - the main purpose is to show off the amazing incentives from Canada to startups in Asia. Have a look at FI.co and Startbase.ca and reach out for more details. Also, I’m a guest-columnist at Techcouver.com a tech blog showcasing what is happening specifically in Vancouver; the startup scene here and it’s bigger than you might think.
...and finally: 5 Photos from my Camera Roll aka Proof of Life
This is not photoshopped: Lake Louise is as amazing as you think! Spent 2 weeks in August exploring my motherland.

I do walk-and-talk coffee meetings and this is a typical day in my neighbourhood in Vancouver! Though as we head into Fall and Winter probably not for much longer.

I find this newsletter the best way to update people drowned in social media messages, but if you want to you can find me there, I am very active on Twitter and Instagram, otherwise this is the place to get quarterly updates and that’s usually more than enough of me in your life 😂
Thanks and talk to you soon!!!
Your friend,
Casey
