Event description

Description

Collision - North America’s fastest growing tech conference - is coming to Toronto so we figured it’s the ideal time for another edition of Founders vs Funders shinny!

We're taking over Mattamy Athletic Centre on May 21st, 2019 at 7 pm for another friendly hockey game pitting hungry startup Founders against a merciless investor group of Funders. Although it is a casual game, it should be noted that Team Funders is undefeated in three previous iterations (video highlights here). After the game we will be heading to the Mick E Flynn’s pub across the street for some beer, food and networking, which is then a short ride to that evening’s Collision festivities in the Distillery District.

All skill levels are welcome, so if you’re a funder or a founder and enjoy playing shinny then join us to celebrate three of Canada’s greatest gifts: hockey, beer and startups. We would especially like to invite any venture capitalists, angel investors or other funders from out of town to come skate at the former home of the Toronto Maple Leafs and really connect with a great slice of the local startup ecosystem - we can assist with logistics in finding some equipment to save you from having to bring your own.


A few things to note:

  • This is not an officially sanctioned Collision activity

  • Although the hockey is non-contact, players still participate at their own risk

  • All players must wear full equipment

  • To ensure participation from as many founders as possible, a maximum of two players may register from a single startup, and we may subsequently limit participation to one member of your team if the roster fills up.

  • For out of towners: the Collision conference agenda ends at 5 pm, and the Mattamy Athletic Centre is about a 15 minute Uber ride away in regular traffic, but could take up to 45 minutes in rush hour traffic. After the game and post game drinks, it’s less than 10 minutes to the Collision Night Summit which is being hosted at the Distillery District on Tuesday night.
