by Knowlton Thomas | Business

DEMO Innovation Tour, Toronto 1/13/2011Innovation is everywhere and DEMO Is coming to find it.

That's the tagline heading the DEMO Tour website as the event travels across North America. Of particular interest is next Thursday, where DEMO crashes into Canada for the first time.

If you don't know what the DEMO tour is, it's a touring party that mixes affluent venture capitalists with local entrepreneurs, who have the opportunity to present themselves to potential investors. 

Sponsored by Rogers Ventures, this should be one of the biggest events of the year for entrepreneurs and VCs alike in the technology space in Toronto. Ten Canadian entrepreneurs will be able to pitch their businesses to VCs, VentureBeat, and DEMO. And those who impress at this DEMO party may be featured in the DEMO Spring showcase at the end of February. 

DEMO Toronto is this Thursday, January 13th, at Century Room (Main level of 580 King West). Best of all? It's free to attend! Register here.
