Day Job: Being an entrepreneur in the Toronto ecosystem

The folks at Fidelity Format have been working non stop the past few months filming a documentary about the five startups in Extreme Startup‘s  Fall 2012 cohort. In their own words “it’s been extra nuts for us trying to capture everything that encompasses being an entrepreneur in the Toronto ecosystem”

We look forward to seeing this documentary hit the big screen soon! Enjoy the sneak peek above!
