LatAm Startups Conf 2017
Wed, 7 Jun 2017, 9:30 AM – Fri, 9 Jun 2017, 5:00 PM EDT
The LatAm Startups Conference 4.0 is a premier event bringing together both the leaders of the Latin American ecosystems and their Canadian counterparts for three intense days of speakers, panels, workshops. Investors, startups, and public policy officials from across the region will meet at the conference, looking for ways to partner with Canada in the years ahead.
This exclusive event connects the Canadian and Latin American startup ecosystems.
Top investors, public policy officials, and startups will come together for three days of speakers, panels, workshops, and tours.
The first two days of the conference are optional tours of the Waterloo (Wednesday, June 7) and Toronto (Thursday, June 8) startup ecosystems. These tours proved extremely popular in 2015, and we expect them to sell out quickly.
A select group of startups from across Latin America will be invited to pitch at the welcoming reception the evening of June 8th.
The conference will take place from 9-5pm on Friday, June 9th at MaRS
