The Ontario Startup Train in an annual pilgrammage in it's 4th year. We fill a few train cars with Ontario startups and entrepreneurs and travel together to The Interational Startup Festival in Montreal. It's a conference on the way to a conference.
This is a chance for alumni from our previous 3 Startup Trains to gather for beer and snacks together in Guelph. As well, for anyone curious what this Startup Train thing is, this is your chance to hear about it straight from our veterans.
For those of you coming on the trip, we’re offering you a chance to pitch on the mainstage at the International Start Festival! Every year, Festival organizers select 12 startups from around the world for the competition. They have reserved one spot for Startup Train passengers only, and on this evening you can compete for your chance to win that spot.
What do you need to do if you’d like that chance?
1. Buy your Startup Train ticket
2. Sign-up for the “pitch” ticket on this Eventbrite page
3. Perfect your pitch for your 1.5 minute slot. No props, no audio-visuals.
4. Pitch spots will be assigned on a first-come-first-serve basis
Train Alumni Pitch Judges (more coming...)
We've asked some of our alumni from previous Startup Train's to help decide who gets a shot to be our main stage startup at the festival....
