Why should I go?
You get to exchange high fives with industry leaders that have proven track records of growing incredible businesses. You’ll also get to rub elbows with Ottawa startup elite. It’s a chance to devour and learn best practices, tricks of the trade and how to scale a business.
Ottawa is on fire! We’re home to hundreds of startups with nearly 69,000 people working in some of the world’s best technology companies. And we have a pretty solid lineup of speakers that want to share their experiences. We want to bring all these people together to celebrate and exchange ideas, free of limitations. We know; it’s sorta cheesy but we truly believe it.
And did we mention we have the food and drinks covered? Because we totally do.
