University of Calgary Computing Science alumni and students joined with STIRR Canada members on January 21st to exchange start-up stories, advice, and ideas at the most recent TechMixer. Calgary-based  iStockphoto’s global success in the microstock photography industry was the topic of the evening.

Kelly Thompson (iStockphoto COO) and Patrick Lor (iStockphoto founding team) shared stories about their early years as entrepreneurs, highlighted the company’s peaks and valleys, and fielded questions from the audience of aspiring tech entrepreneurs.

Thanks to Macleod Dixon for their continued sponsorship of Calgary’s tech entrepreneur community!
