Artemis Update- October 2023
THANK YOU FOR TEN GREAT YEARS
Last week, we celebrated our 10 Year Anniversary. We were thrilled to reconnect with supporters and friends old and new, to reflect on our collective histories, and were reminded why we are continuously inspired by this tech community.
As we celebrate 10 years since Artemis Canada launched, we've reflected on the business of executive search within the tech ecosystem and all that has changed in the past decade. Interestingly, we found that while technologies and company names have changed, the most important things have remained consistent. With that in mind, here is our list of 10 things that haven’t changed in the 10 years of Artemis. In case you missed out, here is a photo album of the night, and a link to our playlist! Sorry, we can’t send charcuterie through e-mail (if one of you solves for that, we’ll invest). Thank you for 10 great years of support and partnership. We look forward to many more!
