Startups: Twitter list

We had an absolute blast shooting Startups over a weekend in January. And we were lucky to land a veritable who’s who of Edmonton to trap in an elevator as our investors. Working on Startups was a breeze with all of these great people involved. They were professional, passionate, and hilarious.

Give them a follow on Twitter so you too can be exposed to their wit, humour, good ideas, and photos of food.
