OPEN BAR NETWORKING
Special thanks to Catapult Brewing for supplying the beer and being a great supporter of the startup community. Ask for Catapult at your favorite bar and LCBO. A drink and some pizza usually help people relax and start conversations. The Startup Coach goes around the room making sure people are connecting, pushing people to sign up to pitch and answering any questions people may have.
Beside talking to everyone about what they are working on and how we can help, the Open Pitch portion of the event is our favorite. With pitches from idea stage to companies with over $50 million raised, October’s Open Pitch was no exception.
