Great Canadian Entrepreneur who Started Young: Austin Hill

November 5, 2007

This Saturday, I had the pleasure of listening to Austin Hill speak about Angel Investing and some facts about the venture climate in Canada. It was an interesting talk with some informative questions and answers that followed. What intrigued me more, though, was reading through Austin’s biography on his blog (http://www.billionswithzeroknowledge.com/). Austin was born in Ottawa and started out his entrepreneurial career at age 17 (impressive and not all too common in Canada – as much as we like to call ourselves in Ottawa Silicon Valley North)… Two of Austin’s many claims to fame include the acquisition of his company TotalNet and the raising of $75 million dollars in capital for his last company Zero-Knowledge (currently RadialPoint).
