It started with a community: An ever-growing accumulation of technology expertise in business and academics approaching critical mass. It evolved to a need: A desire for a place to voice and share the ups and downs – the joys and heartaches of a new sector’s rise.

When the need for a common sounding ground became acute, a group of CEOs from the tech community gathered together to conceptualize a vision of what they wanted. That vision became today’s Communitech.

After a decade of tremendous growth, Communitech moves into decade number two committed to the spirit of their beginnings. In everything they do, their response is based on delivering what the tech community needs in the ways that make sense. What does that mean? A lot of listening and a lot of action.

Communitech’s exhaustive research into the Kitchener-Waterloo area returned more than just the plain facts. In addition to a low unemployment rate and a GDP of $21.5 billion of which $13 billion arises from the tech sector, the region is – simply put – a great place to live. Have a look at their top 10 reasons to live here.
