A TON of Demos

Needs a location

A TON of SaaS:

The theme of this evening event will be 'All Things SaaS'.
We will have Lauren Thibodeau from SaaSCan and two Venture Presenters.

This month the The TON of Demos is live at The ClockTower in the Glebe.

If this is your first time, here’s a primer of how TON of Demos works:

  1. You show up and meet some great people.
  2. An Ottawa innovator does a pitch of their company/product/model.
  3. The rest of us get excited about a great new company in Ottawa.
  4. Some people ask some questions to help the innovator move ahead or provide useful or encouraging feedback.
  5. Repeat steps 2-4, 2-3 more times.
  6. You meet some more great people.

Optional extra steps:
You get a drink and/or something to eat.
See you there!
