Great article Sam; I could not agree more with this type of initiative and I look forward to the minister and his team having due consideration of this excellent suggestion.

Great idea and well put, Sam. Having someone on the inside would surely help steer the ship with startups and put innovation front and centre (or at least in the mix).
