Work hard, play hard.
Entrepreneurs are known for their hustle… the long days and sleepless nights.
Working with startups in our L-SPARK Accelerator, we know what it means to be all-in on your startup but we also know how important it is to unplug and get away from the screen for awhile.
That’s why we, in partnership with Altitude Gym in Kanata, are launching L-SPARK Unplugged: Climbing Edition.
L-SPARK Unplugged: Climbing Edition is a unique networking event that will see 50 startup founders, as well as folks from the startup ecosystem, gather in a bouldering gym to climb walls, connect with each other but most importantly, unplug for a couple of hours.
Please join us from 12-2pm at Altitude Gym in Kanata (on Palladium Drive) for two-hours of play and an ability to network with other founders far, far away from the office or the usual networking hot spots.
*** Event Cost & Ticket Logistics ***
This ticket is to reserve your space only.
The cost per participant will be: 1 day pass $16.50, 1 pair of climbing shoes $4.35 (unless you bring your own gear), for a total of $23.57 with tax. You will pay at the door but we highly recommend filling out the waiver beforehand online.
There are only 50 spots available and they will be given out on a first come, first serve basis.
IMPORTANT: Please do not register if you can not attend as you’ll take up a spot that someone else will likely want. Given the limited numbers, we’ll likely have a waitlist so please let us know if you can no longer attend.
*** FAQs ***
1. Do I need to have bouldering / rock climbing experience?
Absolutely not! You can be extremely experienced or it can be your first time out and you’ll have just as much fun either way. You just need to show up with a willingness to give it a try!
2. What do I need to bring/wear?
If you already have rock climbing / bouldering gear, bring it to save on the rental fee. If you don’t have gear, Altitude Gym has shoes and chalk bags available for rent. As for attire, regular gym wear works great! Just make sure you feel comfortable enough to move around in whatever you wear. Highly recommend bringing a water bottle, too!
There is a change room and shower on-site if you are heading back to work and prefer to shower before you do.
3. Do I need to sign a waiver?
Yes, you’ll need to sign a waiver to participate in the event. To speed up the registration / sign-in process, we highly recommend filling out the waiver online here: https://app.rockgympro.com/waiver/esign/altitudegym/5c61055e-a884-4c51-927f-3c863a9b1842
4. I signed up but now I can’t go. What should I do?
Please let us know. With only 50 spots available, we know that we’ll have a waitlist for this event. We’d love to be able to ensure that all fifty spots are taken (and used!) so if you’ve registered and can no longer attend, please let us know so we can release your ticket to our waitlist.
5. Will there be food/beverages available?
Given that this is a physical activity, we recommend having a bit of an early lunch before you come. There is a snack bar on-site with food and beverages but we will not be providing a lunch as part of the event. There is also a water fountain on-site, which you can fill up your water bottles with.
6. I have another question that isn’t answered here. How do I get that answered?
Please reach out to our Community Manager, Stef, at [email protected] and she’ll be more than happy to answer your questions about our L-SPARK Unplugged: Climbing Edition event!
