Startup Carnival wants to raise $20,000 for Ronald McDonald House

On September 10, Loopio is hosting its second annual Startup Carnival in Toronto, a charity event that supports the Ronald McDonald House (RMHC).

Loopio hopes to raise $20,000 to support sick children and their families, with all proceeds from the event going to the RMHC.

The night includes a CEO dunk tank with Toronto tech executives … as well as a money shower.

The RMHC gives families of sick children a home while their child is treated at a nearby hospital, and a comfortable place for families to rest and recharge inside hospitals. Last year, RMHC supported 25,250 families in need, and 506 families stayed at a Ronald McDonald House or Ronald McDonald Family Room each night.

Taking place at Steam Whistle Brewing, Startup Carnival connects the tech community with friendly competitions and activities. The night includes a CEO dunk tank with Toronto tech executives, blow up axe throwing, and games like cornhole, as well as a money shower. Attendees can enjoy Steam Whistle beer, eat carnival food, and connect with the local tech community throughout the evening.

Tickets for Startup Carnival start at $10, and are $15 at the door. Snack, drink, and game tickets can be bought in advance or during the event.

Toronto-based Loopio helps enterprises streamline their RFP process, requests for information, and security questionnaires. Company content is aggregated to a centralized library for easy access, and subject matter experts and team members can collaborate on documents. In early 2018, the company raised $11 million.

Loopio isn’t the only company involved in putting on Startup Carnival. Clearbanc, which recently raised $300 million USD to help entrepreneurs get funded, is among the title sponsors. Vena Solutions, Platterz, and WorkTango are also among those coming together to support the event.
