"Scott Higgins, of HIP Developments, agrees that while the tech sector is vitally important, it is not the whole economic development picture. “Great tech jurisdictions not only have the ingredients like great schools and a tech ecosystem of VC, incubation, accelerations, etc. but perhaps even more so they must be fun places to live and work. We need more great public spaces to play in. We also then need awesome urban buildings to live in. If we don’t build awesome and innovative places to live young people won’t want to stay (or come) and call Waterloo Region home.”
