**Pitching opportunities are for entrepreneurs with ideas that are highly scalable and tech-enabled. Please do not enter to pitch if you are a consultant or service provider.**

**Due to the popularity of the Startup Drinks & Pitches format, we have begun charging a $5 fee to guarantee your spot. In exchange, you will receive one drink ticket.**

Time to lawyer up? This edition of Startup Drinks & Pitches is co-hosted with Cassels Brock & Blackwell LLP, a leading Canadian law firm with one of the country’s most sophisticated teams dedicated to helping startup and emerging companies protect and grow their businesses.

Through its Emerging Companies Program, Cassels invests time and money in the early stages of startup and emerging companies, with a view of developing long standing partnerships as companies grow.

Whether your company is incorporated or not, talk to an expert from the Cassels team about how their Emerging Companies Program can help your company reach new heights.

Want to practice your pitch in front of a group of fellow entrepreneurs, innovators and community members in a casual setting? Whether you are looking for a technical co-founder or just want to share your idea, join us for Startup Drinks & Pitches!

Grab a drink, throw your name in the hat and (if you're chosen) give your 1 minute pitch to the group!

Your 1 min verbal pitch (no slides allowed!) should focus on:

  • What problem you're solving

  • How you solve that problem

  • What help you need to make it happen (ie: looking for a technical cofounder, looking for beta users, interested in connecting with a supplier, etc.)

This is a casual environment for entrepreneurs at all stages to practice talking about their ideas and seek support from the community.

Pitching opportunities are for entrepreneurs only. Please do not enter to pitch if you are a service provider.
