Taco Tuesdays. Need we say more? Well, we will. Join us for the 20th edition of the pitch finale to be inspired by 16 founders and celebrate their successes! We welcome all to join us in person at Bayview Yards on September 12 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm ET.
As we head into the autumn months, let’s kick it off with an event full of inspiration, innovative ideas, networking, and delicious tacos. Get ready because this cohort is on fire and ready to give the pitch of their life for a chance to win big. The Best Pitch award and the Crowd Favourite (voting by you and all attendees) are up for grabs! The stakes are high as each award provides the founder with an extra six months of one-on-one mentorship from our leading advisors and office space here at Studio7.
You will be hearing from talented individuals from industries including health tech, clean tech, AI, recruitment tech, event planning, social networks, and more.
A reminder to come early to get a good seat and we all know how long the bar and food lines get! We look forward to networking, learning, and celebrating with you all on September 12.
Remember: savour the pitches, one taco at a time.
