Entrepreneurial in nature, Waterloo attracts the finest talent with its co-operative education program and desire to foster potential. 

"The talent here is insane", says Ted Livingston, CEO of Waterloo startup Kik Interactive in an article published by The Chronicle Herald. 

After spending three work terms with RIM, where he was inspired to create a universal messaging service, Livingston recognizes the value of his co-op experiences in setting him up for his current successes. 

"After four years in the co-op program, you know more about starting a company than most people."
