Freelance Camp, a free event organized for Toronto’s freelancers, sold out in less than 2 weeks with over 220 registrations.
The event aims to help new and seasoned freelancers, small business owners and students with peer networking support and over 30 education sessions organized by peers for peers.
Sessions range from business development, legal advice, marketing, social media and more. Schedule can be found on the event website.
The event is free to attend, thanks to the genrous support of Freshbooks, Netfirms, Freelance Pool and Cloud Ad Agents.
According to organizers Alex Blom and Rachel Young the astounding success has demonstrated a thirst for information and networking within Toronto’s highly entrepreneurial community:
The sheer number of registrations clearly proves the need for this kind of professional development event for freelancers. Freelancers don’t often take the time or have the opportunity to learn new skills , but by doing it in a peer setting we can acquire new skills on the business of freelancing.
Industries represented by the registered attendees range greatly, including tech, communications, arts and culture, business services, financial, education, sports and recreation, creative, health and fitness, and event planning. Attendees will be able to learn from one another but also network and develop business relationships with one another.
