Join Us In Toronto And Montreal For An Early April Meetup

We’ve finalized the meetups in Montreal and Toronto and we want to see you there. We originally announced the Montreal meetup a few days ago and now we have all the details. Montreal is happening on April 1 (no fooling) and Toronto is happening on April 2. Be there or be a loonie.

The pitch-offs will follow our tried and true formula. We’ll pick 6 to 8 startups per city and they will have 60 seconds to pitch. Unless you get an email from me specifically stating you are in the pitch-off then you are not in the pitch-off. Applying is not the same as making it. That said, we want to talk to as many of you as possible so be ready with your pitches as we make the rounds. It’s a great opportunity to show off your work, your ecosystem, and your city.

You can apply to pitch in Toronto and Montreal and tickets are still available.

See you soon!

The meetup starts at 7pm and goes until 10:30pm. Tickets cost $10 and include drinks. We’ll have three TC representatives there and we are looking for some local VCs to judge so if you’d like to sit on stage email me at To be considered for the Pitch-Off, please apply here.
