[IN]tensive Day 08 • [IN]take 01
As INtake 01 approaches completion, INcubes goes out with a BANG for the last INtensive Day of our first INtake.
Tim Ryan, founder and CEO of Vestiigo.com, spoke to our startups IN a talk titled “What You Should Be Spending Your Time On”. Being a successful entrepreneur, Tim was able to give sound advice on how to accomplish goals, and waste as little time as possible.
Freshbooks’ Saul Colt gave an exceptional talk, “Getting Noticed From the Start”. He INspired the audience by sharing many of his creative and non-traditional marketing methods that are sure to get a company noticed. His formula, make them think, laugh and/or cry, is one to remember.
Grant Ritchie, CEO of Locationary.com, a very successful startup, was our next mentor IN. Grant’s session, “Wining and Dining the INvestors you Want”, explained the blunt realities and struggles a startup experiences when working towards gaining capital. He provided specific and detailed tips on the resources and INvestors available to Toronto startups.
INoffice INformal INvestor Pitches continued this week, with a new panel of INvestors to give their opinions and suggestions. Daniel Klass from Klass Capital and Round 13 Capital’s Scott Pelton, listened to the INcubes startups’ pitch decks and offered valuable feedback for INcubes Demo Day, on February 28, 2012.
As an added treat, the following morning, the dedicated and always helpful Gerard Buckley, was IN to speak on “Accessing Capital From an Angel Network”, and to add some value to the startup pitch decks.
Thank you to all Mentors and INvestors who participated IN our very successful and very INformative INtensive Days!
