    Vancouver-based Storypanda and Jostle have recently been chosen as two of the top 15 technology startups in Canada by a distinguished panel of Silicon Valley investors and influencers. The companies were selected to present at this year’s GROW Conference.

    Although the two companies develop wildly different products – one sells enterprise collaboration software, the other is targeted at kids and their parents – they do have an interesting commonality: both product design teams are spearheaded by grads of Emily Carr's inaugural year (2008) of the Masters of Applied Arts program!
