We interview successful startup founders in the three Maritime provinces of Canada (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island). The mission behind our project is to show that it's possible to build a technology startup on the East Coast of Canada, and that you don't need to leave to Silicon Valley or another "startup hub" to do so.
The purpose of our interviews is to help inspire or "ignite" the local startup community. We hope that by hearing the stories of founders who are having success here at home, entrepreneurs will see what's possible and be inspired to start a startup of their own.
The target audience is technology entrepreneurs of all ages, but most likely viewers will be between the ages of 18-35.
We will be posting our interviews, or mini-documentaries, on our website, IgniteTheMaritimes.com. We plan on publishing one new episode every month. These videos will be a web series only, not a podcast, TV show, etc. The videos are between 10-20 minutes in length.
