Startup Grind Toronto Hosts Marc Garneau
Tuesday, February 19, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (EST)
Join us February 19th as we welcome politician, retired military officer, and former astronaut Marc Garneau. As Canada’s first astronaut, an officer in the Canadian Navy, president of the Canadian Space Agency, and Chancellor of Carleton University in Ottawa, Dr. Marc Garneau’s exceptional life of leadership and accomplishment is an inspiration to all Canadians.
Going first is hard work. It is not a photo opportunity. It's a grind. Marc Garneau will connect, educate and inspire our Toronto Startup Grind community and join us for a Fireside chat on Feb. 19th. Born in Quebec City, Marc began his career of public service at age 16, when he attended Royal Military College in Saint-Jean, Quebec.
After earning his Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering Physics from the Royal Military College in Kingston, Marc completed a Doctorate in Electrical Engineering at London, England’s Imperial College of Science and Technology. He went on to study at the Canadian Forces Command and Staff College in Toronto.
