CaseCampToronto7 + StartupCampToronto2

Eli has announced CaseCampToronto7 (or check out the Facebook event). It’s happening the same day as StartupCampToronto2, so you’ll just have to self segment, Social Media Mavens versus Entrepreneurs. Though, it looks like both events are going to be homeruns!

StartupCampToronto2 is happening at The Canadian Innovation Exchange conference. Jevon summarizes my feelings nicely about the role of conferences the Canadian Innovation Exchange (CIX). Whether this is a beauty contest (or not), it’s been an interesting conversation about the perceived value to both entrepreneurs and venture capitalists about having companies pay to present. There has been a lot of changes made by the team at CIX in response to feedback on blogs and Twitter.

What: StartupCampToronto2
StartupCamp Toronto is an evening focused on helping Toronto’s early stage startups move to the next stage by putting them in the spotlight, and then by giving them pragmatic and un-filtered feedback on their business.
