After a short mention of the terrible weather, Drew and James talk about Vancouver's tech events from the previous week, and which ones are coming up next. This episode's special guest is Rob Gulewich from Human API. The interview starts at 0:23:42.
Originally from Saskatchewan, Rob has been in Vancouver for a long time, and when approached by a friend to join a new startup, he jumped at the chance. Human API now has a dozen high-profile clients, investment from a bunch of notable investment firms, and they are hiring even more! We chat about the Human API stack, as well as the state of health data in general.
