2016 Fundica Roadshow – Toronto

March 4, 2016 @ 8:30 am - 7:00 pm

$10

The Fundica Roadshow is an initiative by Fundica which started in 2013.

In 2015, the Fundica team travelled 20,019 km, in 25 days, across 11 cities to complete the Fundica Roadshow, which was by far the best one we had.

In each of the 10 cities we visit, we select up to 20 technology companies to pitch to a panel of investors throughout the day. The best pitch wins roundtrip airfare to San Francisco to pitch to Valley investors, three months office space in San Mateo and funding for their business. We also provide inspirational presentations by great speakers from OMERS Ventures, FrontFundr, Fundthrough, Founder Institute, MaRS, Ryerson DMZ, Real Ventures, Impression Ventures, Relay Ventures, Blakes, IBM, PayPal and many more.
