We are proud to support Fundica’s 2014 Funding Roadshow and think it is a great chance for entrepreneurs working on an innovative product to pitch their business seed/ideas to a panel of angels, VCs, banks, and government organizations.
Entrepreneurs will individually pitch in a closed setting to funders in order to:
• Receive candid feedback on their pitch and business model
• Meet experts who provide one-on-one tips for their business
• Follow-up with funders and potentially get funded
The roadshow will be held in 10 Canadian cities between April and June 2014, including Toronto (April 9), Guelph (April 11) Ottawa (April 15), Halifax (April 17), Winnipeg (May 21), Vancouver (May 23), Edmonton (May 26), Calgary (May 28), Victoria (May 30) and Montreal (June 2). >>Check out the venue for your city
Information for pitchers
Ten young seed stage tech entrepreneurs will pitch to a panel of eight funders in the morning, and ten seed/growth stage tech entrepreneurs with revenue will pitch to eight funders in the afternoon. There will be other events such as workshops and network sessions related to funding opportunities and will be open for everyone.
Information for funders
All funders will have the opportunity to present in front of pitching and non-pitching entrepreneurs, interact with and educate pitching entrepreneurs in a candid setting, and potentially find funding candidates. Funders will also be invited to lunch with other funders, meet national and community partners, participate in workshops, and do so in an efficient half or full day format.
