FounderFuel Heads to San Francisco with Canadian Startups in Tow

Posted by Rob Lewis

Montreal's FounderFuel is joining London's Seedcamp and Sydney's Startmate to bring 15 international (including Canadian) startups to San Francisco.

FounderFuel, Seedcamp, and Startmate each play roles at fostering startup communities outside of the US, and International Demo Day will feature up to six startups from each of the programs. These startups from across the planet will travel to the Bay area on a mission to raise capital.

The participants from FounderFuel are Kiwi Wearables, Transit App, Now In Store, Tattoo Hero, and Provender.

“The goal of the International Demo Day is to show the Valley what startups around the world are doing,” said Ian Jeffrey, General Manager of FounderFuel. "FounderFuel is proud to have joined forces with two of the strongest programs out there and we look forward to seeing what Valley investors think of all the companies participating.”

In collaboration with AngelList, the three seed organizations are hosting an investor event on Thursday, April 10 at 6pm at Automattic.
