Ambition On A Global Scale – Marcus Daniels in the AOL Conversation Studio

March 27, 2014 Ben Myers

If the question “A million dollars isn’t cool; You know what’s cool?” could come out of a real person’s mouth rather than screenwriter Aaron Sorkin’s brain, Marcus Daniels might be person utter it.

Extreme Startups LogoHe’s looking for “ambition on the global scale” with the companies he recruits as Managing Director at Extreme Startups, and he knows that Canada has the talent to match his aspirations.

“There’s a battle for entrepreneurial talent globally, and we’re really blessed with the academic institutions that are churning out phenomenal engineers and business talent,” he said.

He warns against selling out too soon, and taking the cash rather than building the platform for other businesses. Ontario could be the host of “new ecosystems of new industries” that come from innovative companies that stick it out and grow big.

He’s thinking about building the next billion-dollar business, and Aaron Sorkin has nothing to do with it.
