Four Montreal organizers are excited to bring back the annual TechNoel startup Christmas bash. The BetaKit-sponsored event will happen on December 11 and 100 percent of the proceeds will be given to the Montreal Children’s Hospital.
Last year’s celebration brought together Montreal’s startup community for a night of fun and this year should be likened to version 2.0. The event will be held at “Apartment 200,” a nice spot on St. Laurent Boulevard that resembles an actual apartment. TechNoel will be hosted by FounderFuel general manager Ian Jeffrey, Real Ventures analyst Gabriel Sundaram, Wavo cofounder Conor Clarke and Bandzoogle‘s David Dufresne. Clarke, Jeffrey, Dufresne and I Can Go Without‘s Paul Rowland will all take turns spinning records all night.
“We know startups in montreal will likely be hosting their own holiday parties and we hope that they’ll all join us after so we can all come together to celebrate as a community,” said Jeffrey. “The milestones achieved and successes big and small.”
Sundaram mentioned that unlike larger corporations who might organize one big christmas party, there’s dozens of small startups that might only celebrate amongst themselves. TechNoel, he said, is a great way for every startup in Montreal to come and celebrate with each other.
Everyone is welcome to come to the bash and tickets can be bought here. BetaKit managing editor Joseph Czikk will also hold a contest for “Best Christmas Sweater”, in which the winner and his/her team will win a tasty and refreshing prize.
