Jim Maynard’s vision of Canada as a global and dominant leader in mobile and wireless – now is the time to move and move fast.

UNTETHER.tv was the official broadcast partner for the recent Mobile Innovation Week and this is one of the sessions we had while on location in Toronto.

Jim Maynard is a passionate mobile guy – that is very obvious from this session. He’s also a staunch supporter of the small mobile entrepreneur and wants to help Canada become a world leader in this nascent space. One of the key takeaways from speaking with him is that we, as Canadians and Canadian companies, have a massive opportunity to bring our mobile technologies to the rest of the world and to lead this revolution.

Jim’s insight is from a “let’s get going” perspective and we should all listen. Now.
