Startup Train is back for year #6. It’s hard to believe it was over 6 years ago that I had this wacky idea to pack a train car with startup nerds and travel together to International Startupfest. We’ve sold out every year since!
Newsflash: Tickets are on sale now so make sure to get yours before they’re gone. Tickets include your one-way Startup Train experience AND your Startupfest registration.
We’ve tweaked and iterated every year to make the train more and more awesome. The biggest change this year (in addition to our brand new branding!) is that we are departing a day earlier than usual, July 11th. This will allow those attending the Premium Events to join us on the journey. Our other train riding Superheroes will have the opportunity to enjoy Montreal in the summertime a day earlier and not be train tired at the Startupfest opening kick-off party! With it being Montreal’s 375th birthday, there will be no shortage of activities and things going on in the city.
Our mission remains the same: to bring together and support our startup community by providing access to mentors and investors as well as other startup peers while providing good food and good fun!
All the best things about Startup Train are back: Mimosas, one-on-one speed-dating mentors, locked on a train with other Startup Superheroes, investors, experienced founders and more for 5+ hours. BUT there will also be lots of new things to experience. Stay tuned and get your inner Startup Superhero ready!! This is one train you DON’T want to miss!
How does it work? You’ll meet us in VIA’s first class lounge at Union Station in Toronto, July 11th @10:00am sharp! You’ll meet other Startup Superheroes, enjoy a coffee and then we’ll board the train. We get started with mimosas courtesy of DMZ and first class meal service. You’ll then meet one-on-one with mentors in our very own bar car. Then it’s mingle time.
When we pull in at Montreal’s Central Station faster than a speeding bullet, we will unload an incredible group of well prepared Startup Superheroes, ready to get the most out of Startupfest! Focused, fearless and ready to fight crime!! Ok, maybe not the fight crime part…
Get your tickets now! All Aboard!!
