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.

[IN]cubes CEO Ben Zlotnick Building INvestor Bridges [IN]Chicago & [IN]NYC
INcubes CEO has been on the road this month doing some hands-on investor relations in U.S. startup investment hotspots.
As an accelerator in the vast Canadian landscape, INcubes has access to a plethora of northern talent in a very conservative Canadian investment climate.
INcubes has a differentiator that sets us apart from other Canadian accelerators. INcubes embraces the Tech Maverick. We are startup founders ourselves. INcubes is agile, nimble and can connect with unusual ventures that at first seem ‘out of the box’.
It is often those unusual ventures that we seek out that prove to be the most innovative and therefore the most valuable when given proper support through INtensive Acceleration and Ongoing INcubation. It’s also those that currently are the least supported by Canadian money and are often forced to move south and go ‘international’ far too soon.
Leaving a home network and support system too early creates great risk for any venture, and also creates a one-way brain-drain that’s not good for the Canadian Economy, nor for the U.S. investors. INcubes is working to change that.
Ben’s trips south and overseas are building bridges between investors and Canadian Startups.
From Silicon Valley and Silicon Alley to Silicon North, the exchange of opportunities and investments is most lucrative when it flow two ways.
