Me and 2 more guys from out team attended an event called "Ignite Montreal". It had some pretty captivating speakers. One of the speakers was the person who was able to trade his one red clip for a house (http://oneredpaperclip.blogspot.com/p/about.html
). I heard that story before, but never knew that he lived in Montreal also.
It's pretty inspiring to see how a person can achieve so much with so little. He may not have invested a million dollars into the project, but what he did invest is a whole bunch of sweat equity and time.
After the meeting we realized that we share a lot in common with many of the speakers. We're very dedicated to our project and we have an unconditional belief that what we're doing is going to change the world for the better.
