Announcing INcubes DemoDay INtake02 Programme
It’s nearly [IN]cubes Demo Day • INtake 02 Wednesday, September 12, 1pm • INvite Only; at the Toronto Stock Exchange Tower . As INtake 02 grads on our second DemoDay, our 4 Startups are poised to make their presence known globally.
Toronto boasts the most exits of any city in Canada, although it severely lacks support for early-phase internet entrepreneurs. At DemoDay Toronto’s Tech Community looks back at what INcubes has spurred and how Canadian startups fit into global business.
INcubes has successfully brought support for early startup teams in Toronto and to Canada’s business centre in the form of our private INcubator and nimble, agile, and competitive Acceleration Program. While only just in our second INtake, we’ve been listed as among the top accelerators in Canada, and we’re the only of significance servicing early startups in Canada’s finance centre. This DemoDay is the place to be to see Canadian INternet INnovation emerge. This is what we founded INcubes to do.
