Toronto's FolioSpace Wants to Build Your Portfolio and Make it Social for Free

Posted by Techvibes NewsDesk

FolioSpace is a brand new web platform built by tech startup Couch Labs, which is based out of Toronto. Launched only yesterday by founder Steve Cosmam—best known for creating TweetPad—FolioSpace builds you a social portfolio for free.

An engineer on that project, Sara also reveals her mentorship role at Extreme Startups, a Toronto tech accelerator.
