Please come with a prepared 60 seconds (or less) elevetor pitch on who you are, what you bring to a team, what you are looking for and your idea if you have one. Please prepare or practice this in advance so everyone has time and no one runs over.
We strongly recommend you setup an Angel List profile is you don't have one already before the event.
Appetizers and snacks will be provided.
We would love to offer this event for free but that only happens with sponsorship, if you know a company or organization that might be interested in sponsoring this event so we can help co-founders connect for free please email Ottawa@StartupCan.ca!
