🏙️ Mariah Carey season is on for Vancouver Tech

Plus, discover which NASDAQ-listed company has launched its AI strategy, and meet the new investment vehicle for Vancouver SaaS entrepreneurs.

Can you believe it’s halfway through November? Or that Mariah Carey season has officially begun?

That realization hit me hard as I was looking through our upcoming Tech Journal events, and realized that this month’s tech industry social will be the last of 2023. If you haven’t already, mark your calendars for November 29 and come down to Yaletown Brewing to hang out with a packed house of tech professionals. Honestly, I’ll go out on a limb and say it’s going to be much more fun than your company Christmas party. Not least because your first drink is free.

Now onto today’s briefing. It’s 963 words: a four-minute read.
