About this Event

Join us as we celebrate and showcase the diversity and high potential of startups across southern Ontario during our annual AC JumpStart showcase event:

SPARK

SPARK brings cohorts 9 and 10 of the AC JumpStart program together with industry and community members to showcase their work and celebrate the strength of the ecosystem.

In this “science fair” style event, you will have the opportunity to explore and interact with startups and vote for the ones that you think have the highest potential.

The three startups who receive the highest number of votes will then have the opportunity to pitch to our panel of judges.

The top startup will receive the Rogers Innovation Prize of $5,000.
