One of the most exciting things about Canada’s digital landscape is the growing number of startup entrepreneurs jumping into the fray.
While the startup ecosystem still needs to become more robust and better financed, it definitely feels like we’re on the right path, particularly when you see companies such as Well.ca, ClearFit, Method CRM and Press.ly raising growth capital.
To support and nurture startups, the mesh conference is excited about the Hosted Startup Program, which will provide 50 entrepreneurs with the opportunity to attend the two-day event, which happens May 15 and 16 at the Allstream Centre in Toronto.
The program provides entrepreneurs with a way to expand their connections, share ideas, be inspired and rub shoulders with more than 700 attendees.
So how does a startup entrepreneur get involved?
Applications, which are open to startup entrepreneur or an employee of a start-up, can be completed until April 12.
For people selected, the only obligation for a startup entrepreneur is short meeting with the program’s sponsors - Ernst & Young, Visa, Rackspace and Wildeboer Dellelce - who will be on hand to offer advice, support and their services.
The Hosted Startup Program is a way for mesh to embrace the startup community, while giving startups a great boost. Many of the 20 startups that participated in the program last year came away with valuable contacts and business opportunities.
