Join the Invest Ottawa #HustleShuttle

Roadtrip to StartupFest

We’re organizing a road trip to Montreal and we want you to join us!

Startupfest is here once again and we’re looking to fill up the Invest Ottawa #HustleShuttle with awesome Ottawa startups.

Register by July 11th for a free round-trip ride to the festival (July 12-14, 2017). Along the way, you’ll have the chance to practice your pitch and get advice directly from technical advisors, entrepreneurs, and startup mentors. Get your startup featured in the Ottawa Startup Tent, get lost in all of the startup-focused activities, and get ready to be amazed by the excellent lineup of speakers. We’ll take care of the travel to and from the event, and provide a heavily discounted ticket to the festival.

If you’re a startup, don’t miss this festival.

  • It’s a unique blend of quality content, unbeatable networking, and unconventional fun. Startups from around the world journey to Montreal each year for the event; we think you should too.
  • There are hundreds of investors, analysts, journalists and peers all in one place. Where else can you talk to a hundred prospects, pitch a dozen investors, and scout close competitors in just three days?
  • It’s the perfect place to master your pitch, share your story and get funded. There is over $250,000 awarded through prizes alone!
