Pitch Your Startup
Pitching your startup isn’t just about simply describing what your product is, or what your offering can do to change the world. There’s an art and science behind pitching a startup, and it begins with captivating your audience — whether that’s your potential investor, your first customers, or us.
So let’s start the conversation.
Are you a degreed, experienced professional with years of experience across one or more of the STEM fields? You’re likely looking for ways to bring your expertise to greater horizons — namely Canada, the land of opportunity.
However, you may not have experience in the startup space. Nevertheless, you’re curious about the entrepreneurial world, and have enough significant knowledge, education and professional impact that you know you could make a difference in the Canadian business landscape.
Tell us about yourself as well as your expertise, and we’ll find a place for you in a leading-edge international startup team.
