  31. 31. It’s  time  for  Canada  to  redefine  itself  as  a  Startup  Nation    –      A  nimble,   networked  country  where  communities  are  startup  laboratories  that   create  innovative  new  businesses,  employ  people  and  make  Canada   and  the  world  a  better  place.       To  do  this,  we  need  to  build  startup  communities  that  balance  the   needs  of  entrepreneurs,  investors,  universities,  mentors,  services   providers,  government  and  communities  themselves.       •  Startup  Canada  is  building  a  national  network  of  startup   communities  –  led  by  entrepreneurs  for  entrepreneurs  –  to  provide   the  foundation  of  an  intensely  connected  and  collaborative  nation-­‐ wide  network,  wherein  entrepreneurs  can  plug  into  the  network  to   access  events,  support,  space,  mentors,  funding  and  much  more.     •  In  doing  so,  Startup  Canada  will  work  closely  with  entrepreneurs  in  a   collaborative  pilot  project  15  Startup  Communities  at  diverse  levels   of  maturation  capable  of  demonstrating  early  tangible  results.     •  This  pilot  aims  to  measurably  increase  the  number,  activity-­‐level  and   effectiveness  of  15  Startup  Communities  and  to  build  the  framework   and  infrastructure  to  support  the  roll  out  of  Startup  Communities   across  Canada  in  2014.   Startup Communities !
