The Kootenay Association for Science and Technology has published an online interview with local entrepreneur Jean-Marc La Flamme. This is the last in its series of four podcasts with Revelstoke entrepreneurs and is available online at http://kast.com/podcast/jmlaflamme/.
“What happens when one of the original builders of the web decides he prefers the ski and mountain bike valley of Revelstoke, BC over Silicon Valley California?” asks Andrew Zwicker, KAST’s communications and special projects coordinator. “What happens when one of the top web producers in the business, opts to take his experience having built such websites as Yahoo!, Expedia and WestJet among others, and goes out on his own? Finally, what happens when you’re an ideas guy, who is regularly coming up with new solutions to problems and new businesses to fund and launch?
“I connected with Jean-Marc La Flamme via Skype to talk about his impressive backstory, how he shunned Silicon Valley for Revelstoke BC, the importance and value of crowdfunding for entrepreneurs, and a few of his latest projects including a new solution called crowd financing.”
KAST had previously posted interviews with photographer Bruno Long, Stoke FM founder Scott Duke and me as creator of The Revelstoke Current. You can find those podcasts at http://kast.com/podcast/.
KAST also has a new podcast about the ins and outs of freelancing. If you are an aspiring writer, photographer, graphic artist or anyone else trying to market your skills you may find that of value.
