The startup culture in Vancouver is not only thriving, itâ€™s growing. Itâ€™s become a trend of itâ€™s own that inspires, and encourages everyone to join in. People who move to the city see and experience this first hand, and realize that when surrounded by the energy here, there isnâ€™t anything they canâ€™t do. The world is your oyster in Vancouver, but how did that come to be? Why is Vancouver such a hot-bed of self employed creatives?
As part of an ongoing series, weâ€™ll be meeting and interviewing creative entrepreneurs in Vancouver to see how and why they think this has happened, how theyâ€™ve benefited from it, and what makes them tick as an entrepreneur; we want to know, â€śWhy Vancouverâ€ť.
This week we spoke to Alexa Mazzarello of Alexa Mazzarello Creative.Â Photographer, creative, and all round babe, Alexa is a fellow full time member at Lâ€™Atelier. We originally met through the amazingly connected community of creatives in Vancouver, so she seemed like the perfect person to pitch my â€śWhy Vancouverâ€ť question to.
