UNB Fertile Ground For Tech Startups
December 05th, 2013
Entrepreneur and smartphone app developer Patrick Malone has his sights set on Fredericton. He has taken his smartphone app, iTendr, to the popular CBC television show Dragon’s Den.
While Malone has been living in Vancouver for five years, he says the company is eyeballing Fredericton, which has a high profile in the tech community. And the University of New Brunswick is fertile ground for tech startups.
“For a small city, it is punching way above its weight class,” Malone said.
