SalesProChat: Supporting Canada's Innovative Companies of Tomorrow
Dec 15, 2017 | Canadian Professional Sales Association lock

In the December SalesProChat episode, Amie Sergas talks with host Bill Banham about supporting Canada's next generation of innovative brands. 

Toronto-based Amie Sergas works with Ontario’s partner network of Regional Innovation Centres through the Business Acceleration Program (BAP) at MaRS Discovery District. Over the last nine years she has developed and managed funding programs and support services for the Ontario innovation entrepreneur ecosystem.

More recently, Amie has also been building out venture programs to support MaRS Start services. She brings over 15 years of program development and operations experience to this role. Prior to working at MaRS Amie held roles in marketing and business development in both telecom and biotechnology companies, as well as in cleantech and bioproducts for a non-profit organization. She holds a BSc in biotechnology and chemistry from Brock University and an MBA from Queen’s School of Business.

Listen to the CPSA’s interview with Amie Sergas and join us on November 30 for our monthly #SalesProChat Twitter chat.

The interview considers questions such as:

* The Business Acceleration Program (BAP) at MaRS Discovery District - why was it created, what is it and what does it do?

* The background of start-up leaders - do you often see start-ups being led by professionals with sales and marketing-focused careers?

* Do start-ups require sales-focused leadership skills?

* How can pros with a sales background connect with tech pros to network and find the next big innovation?

* What advice would you offer to a sales-focused professional looking to make the leap into starting their own business?
