Where will you be July 13th? I’ll be co-hosting the International Startup Festival in Montreal with some of the brightest and smartest minds in the startup world. The startup festival is a two-day conference on the business of startups. It brings together industry veterans and fresh faces, thought leaders and technology giants from around the world, for a series of lean, fast-paced events. It includes startup launches, inspiring keynotes, and deep-dives into hot sectors like mobility, social networking, and gaming.

Apply to pitch your startup!

Phil Telio (Exec. Dir of Startup Festival) and I had a chance to catch up today and talk about why startups need to attend this and what’s to expect (fyi Fireworks!!!).

This event is one of many that are occurring across Canada, and is a big step towards innovation and supporting startups across the country. If you can find me .. beers are on me. Can’t wait to see you all in July!

    Dan, you said “awesm” 57 times.

    +You leaning in & out of the camera repeatedly (as opposed to your guest who was animated but within the same spot) was a bit disconcerting.

    Thanks for sharing! Can’t wait to hear from the committee. We’re a startup in the “lean, hungry and innovative” phase. I’ll look for you, especially if beer is one you :P

    Applied to pitch!

    The price of the tickets despite your discount code stings.. but I guess I’ll have to dig a little deeper and swallow the cost.. :(

    Looking forward to connecting with you in Montreal, Dan!
