The Startup Coach –
Tuesday Wednesday Update
It’s Wednesday May 15 2019, and it’s already been an awesome week, this is your Startup Coach update. This week on Startup Talk I talk to Erika J Murray founder of Ji App about starting a dating app in Toronto, building traction, and exiting. She also mentions how it all started with TorontoStarts events.
Tonight’s Startup Drinks Open Pitch Open Bar will have several must see guests! Starting off with Mike Lee of Fundica and The Fundica Roadshow who has helped raised over $82 million in investment! I am excited to announce that Catapult Brewery will be onsite with some great tasting beer! Make sure you come early and take part in the pitch coaching session by Nicky from OutLoud Speakers School (seriously you should come just for this!). Talking about investment make sure you come early and talk to Ryan and Alex from Equivesto valuations, and what investors want to see! If that wasn’t enough our very own Growth Hacker the Startup Coach is going to give you a great networking hack. Oh and there is beer, wine, pizza, pitches and amazing networking we are famous for. See you at Startup Drinks!
On Monday evening we put together a special Make an Impact pitch coaching and meet the investor session with some of the companies pitching at the Fundica Roadshow this Thursday. Together with Ryan from Equivesto, Will From OutLoud Speakers School, we put together a completely different style of pitch coaching which led to feedback such as “This was the best pitching session I have ever attended”, and “Holy Crap this was amazing!”.
Shout out to Ryan and Will for doing such a great job.
