In this episode Scott, Mike, Kerry, and I talk about crowd funding fails, scams, and the whole mentality of backing a kickstarter project.
In this episode we talk about building a minimum viable product and how I have tried to do that with PanoPla.
PanoPla is a new technology start-up located on innovation alley. The focus of the company is to help businesses, realtors, schools, and users to build and share their own virtual tours and VR content. PanoPla was developed locally by talented developers and is growing it’s user base over 34 countries in just 5 months.
The tool makes it easy for anybody to take a virtual field trip, travel the world, show a home, or go to Mars.
This past weekend was the 8th Ramp up Weekend, presented by Innovate Manitoba. If you are not familiar with Ramp up then you should be. The weekend is 55 hours to build an MVP and start a company. We have competed in the past and actually started a product out of the weekend.
We have been lucky enough to attend numerous events here in Winnipeg, Manitoba about bringing technology into the class room and to show educators what kind of tools we are using to innovate right now. We have decided to build a simple guide for schools who want to find the resources needed to do so.
It has been a while since I wrote starting up, I have been busy with my business (which is a good thing). When I started Bit Space Development I set out to learn.

What I didn’t anticipate was how much I would learn in such a short amount of time.

I gave another awkward speech to students at Red River College recently. This might not be awkward to most people but I’m not used to it. The topic was jumping off a cliff or doing what I did and jumping off a shit load of small hills.
The talk was for entrepreneurship students in the Business Information Technology program at RRC and is about building your network of mentors, gaining support and taking a leap of faith.
