Today the City of Waterloo launched a five-part video series, entitled Why Waterloo, aimed at explaining Waterloo’s growing appeal.
“There is a buzz about our city and we all feel it,” said Mayor Jaworsky during this year’s state of the city address. “Whether we are long-time residents, established community leaders, young students…or youth about to embark on their post-secondary journey, we all know that Waterloo is the place to be.”
We're a technology company that provides a software platform used by media publishers around the world to run advertising online. As CEO I do a bit of everything. I spend a lot of time with customers as well as growing the team and driving the overall vision and strategy for the company.
I started the company about eight months before graduating from the University of Waterloo.
WATERLOO — For a company like Desire2Learn in Kitchener, which provides software platforms for educators to build learning content and evaluate student results, it's all about the quality of the data.
"We do a lot of work with predictive analytics," says Jeremy Auger, chief strategy officer at Desire2Learn. "Using data from classrooms, we can predict whether a student will drop out or fail, and that allows the schools to do intervention or address the risk factors early on."
