TORONTO ­— It's too depressing to write about the total, dismal, though probably not final, collapse of Nortel , which declared bankruptcy today. The New York Times did as respectable an obit as possible, which you can read here.

WATERLOO — Thanks to Aydin at Startup Ottawa for turning us on to the mini-coup by K-W's LoyaltyMatch, the make-your-rewards-count-program led by the Ball brothers, Brad (CEO) and Mike (CTO). LM was featured in a 30-second clip on myfoxdc.com, which you can see by clicking here.

OTTAWA — Peter Fillmore sends invite to a reunion of grads of OCRI's Entrepreneur's Edge program tomorrow (Jan. 15), from 17:00-19:30 at the Great Canadian Theatre Company, 1233 Wellington W. (at Holland). Agenda includes free snacks, cash bar, networking and a surprise "guest entrepreneur speaker from Ottawa's innovation community." Friends, friends of friends and "Ottawa’s entrepreneurial boosters are also invited." That means you.


Companies in the Ontario Technology Corridor, almost 6,000 of them, spanning the software, photonics, wireless, cleantech, digital media, life sciences, and microelectronics sectors, employ more than 250,000 people. There are almost 30 universities and colleges along the Ottorloo corridor.
