Our last 321 meetup was all about great company, and hearing from one great company…

Last week, we hosted our quarterly 321 Meetup with our 321 alumni and crew, to chat traction and growth.

In addition to drinks, snacks (so many snacks!), and bonbons from The Chocolate Lab, we also enjoyed hearing the Benevity growth story – directly from their founder and CEO, Bryan de Lottinville.

All of us had heard about Benevity, seen its logo light up our skyline, and knew it was one of Calgary’s tech ‘anchor tenants’. But few of us had heard the path the company has taken to becoming a global leader in employee engagement.

We had a great discussion as a group – on how growth isn’t always linear, on how companies of all stages have different paths to growth, and how culture can be a driver of growth.

I think we all left the 321 Meetup #inspired.

A big thanks to Bryan de Lottinville, and Benevity, for hosting our meetup. And for sharing and connecting with the YYC innovation ecosystem!

The power of community…

Meeting other 321’ers who share the same struggles is so valuable. But doing that while hearing first-hand the growth story of a company who’s gone global? Priceless.
