Toronto’s Wattpad is opening a second headquarters in Halifax to tap into the city’s talent pool as the company grows.
The storytelling platform announced today that it will open an office in Halifax’s Volta Innovation Hub in 2020.
“We do not want this to be a branch office but a full-blown headquarters equal in capability and capacity to our Toronto headquarters,” CEO Allen Lau told the Globe and Mail.
He said a few Haligonians working for the 180-person company have volunteered to move home to seed the office but declined to share further details.“This is not a one-year project. We want to use the announcement as the foundation to start building.”
