Next Founders Info Session @ Communitech

Start: Feb 21, 2019 12:00-1:30pm

Are you the founder of a startup with potential for serious growth? The creator of disruptive technology you're hoping to commercialize? A talented founder seeking personal development and an expanded network?

In partnership with Communitech, come meet our alumni, staff, and supporters and learn more about Next Founders in an informal setting. Ask lots of questions and hear how the program has dramatically changed the trajectory of Waterloo-based startups like Palette, Maieutic, TritonWear,, Linkett, and others.

Next Founders provides a small group of early stage founders with a peer network of entrepreneurs facing similar challenges, a valuable network of investors, advisors and customers, and relevant education delivered by world class faculty and entrepreneurs.

Meet Next Founders alumni and hear more about their experiences in this video.

We hope you can join us! Space is limited, so please submit your RSVP by February 21st.
