Here’s where you can find all the Startupfest 2024 after-parties

Canadian tech has its choice of parties, mixers, and workshops to attend in Montréal this year.

The team that pulled together a community-submitted list of all the events surrounding this year’s Collision conference in Toronto has returned to hook up attendees of Startupfest in Montréal this year. 

The list had nine events by press time, but anyone can add in their own event details.

From the mind of Erdos Ventures founder and Toronto Tech Fest chair Michael Liu, the Startupfest after-parties list highlights local events that coincide with Startupfest, which takes place from July 10 to 12 at Montréal’s Old Port. 

BetaKit is a Startupfest media partner and Startupfest is a member of BetaKit’s Innovation Leaders program.

The list, compiled in this Google sheet, features a variety of activities surrounding Startupfest, including parties, networking opportunities, mixers, and workshops. The list had nine events by press time, but anyone can add in details to their own event in the designated section. 

Some of the events on the list are completely free, while others require tickets to be purchased or may be invite-only.

The event will also feature pitch competitions with cash awards, including Startupfest’s $100,000 Best of the Fest Investment Prize, The Firehood’s $100,000 Women in Tech Investment Prize, Rep Matters’s $100,000 Black Entrepreneurship Investment Prize, and more.
