We want to hear your startup story!

Dec 20, 2035 · Vancouver, Canada

Are you a startup founder?
Do you have an inspiring startup story?
We want to hear your startup story!

To cultivate a community of inspiration and peer growth, we are looking for founders to share their startup stores on an inspirational and informational basis. Whether these are success stories or failure stories (we do failure nights once in a while), these are stories worth sharing.

Note that this is a startup stories sharing night, and not pitch night. (we will have pitch nights on other days)

The ideal startup story is around 5-10 minutes (like a ted talk) and has a central theme (lesson) to inform/inspire the community. Examples of topics you can share about:
-How I secured my seed capital
-My startup journey from inception to exit.
-How I got my first SAAS 1000 customer in 6 months
-No investors wanted to work with me, so I raised $20k selling on ecommerce to get the capital i needed.
-Pivoting my startup from B2C to B2B wasn't easy but it was the best thing ever done.
-My first employee was a nightmare (Lesson on setting up employment contracts)
-My first idea was an ugly baby (lesson on fad markets)
-I'm an Introvert but I managed to get a YouTube channel of 2 million subscribers.

Submission Process:
Please send [masked] an email including:
-Your Name
-Startup Name
-Startup website
-Core theme/topic (eg. getting investment, Marketing fail, building a team, Customer validation etc...)
-A short summary on what you want to share
