Join Startup Calgary for Startup Drinks & Pitches.

Ready to scale? This edition of Startup Drinks & Pitches is co-hosted with the Lazaridis Institute who are on the search for Canada’s next 10 high-potential Canadian tech companies for their nationwide scaleup program. Consult with one of their experts, and find out how their program can help you scale. Applications for Cohort 5 of the Lazaridis ScaleUp Program are open from May 1, 2019 - July 5, 2019. For more information about the ScaleUp Programpast cohort companies, visit

Come and practice your pitch to a group of fellow entrepreneurs, innovators and community members in a casual, no pressure setting. Whether you are looking for a technical co-founder or just want to share your idea, join us for Startup Drinks & Pitches on Wednesday, June 26.

Grab a drink (or two), 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:

  1. What problem you're solving

  2. How you are going to solve that problem

  3. What help you need to make it happen (ie: looking for a technical co-founder, 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.

This is a free event and two drink tickets are included with your registration.
