    I recently met Sunny at a Toronto start-up social event…one wonders why Ms. Shao would leave “sunny” Vancouver for “cool” Toronto…perhaps Entrepreneurship and Venture Capital is moving east?…A warm welcome to Sunny…let the socializing begin :)

    Thanks for the warm welcome Murray, but one clarification – Vancouver is not “sunny” usually, but Toronto is definitely pretty cool :)
