Startup Canada To Launch Crowdfunding Campaign

startup canadaFollowing Startup Canada’s launch of its Startup Blueprints, which outlined key findings and action items from its 2012 National Tour, the non-profit, volunteer-run organization will unveil a major crowdfunding campaign during a press conference at the Waterloo Accelerator Centre tomorrow, in support of one of the Blueprints’ key initiatives.

Startup Canada will use Indiegogo to raise $100,000 in support of Startup Canada Connect, a central online meeting place for Canadian entrepreneurs to tap into local and national startup communities to connect with support, resources, opportunities, associations, communities, news, events and mentors. Startup Canada Connect will be free, dynamic, comprehensive, personalized, underpinned by startup communities on the ground, and built by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs. Startup Canada is aiming to launch the platform in May 2013.
