FounderProject is on the hunt to find Canada's top student startups who will get the opportunity to pitch in front of the world at FounderChallenge on December 4 (Details will be made available shortly).
To kick off our hunt in Montreal FounderProject is throwing FounderExpo! - the name for the event that will take place on November 12th @ the PwC Montreal offices at 1250 René-Lévesque Blvd W!
FounderExpo gives you the opportunity to pitch Canada's top venture capitalists one on one. Whether you're working in a start-up, looking to start your own venture, or just interested in entrepreneurship FounderExpo provides you with the platform to get together, share ideas, and network with leading VCs and professionals across Montreal.
At past events startups were formed, co-founders were found, and a handful of student startups successfully raised venture funding.
So, come to grab a bite, a drink (or two), hear cool speakers, pitch your ideas and potentially meet your new co-founder!
On November 12th Greg Isenberg, CEO of 5by.com (recently acquired by StumbleUpon), will be the keynote speaker. VCs from iNovia Capital, RHO Canada, FounderFuel, and others will be in attendance. For more details check our facebook event here: http://tinyurl.com/kyr2k2s !
