STARTUP CANADA DAY ON THE HILL 2016 presented by Intuit QuickBooks

Calling all Startup Canadians! Join us on May 5 at the Shaw Centre in Ottawa to provide direct input into Canada’s Innovation Strategy alongside Canada’s leading entrepreneurs, anchor companies and experts.

Startup Canada Day on the Hill brings Ministers, Members of Parliament and senior bureaucrats together with Canada’s entrepreneurship community to ensure that entrepreneurs are helping to create the conditions for success, growth and impact.

With panels moderated by CPAC, Globe & Mail, the Toronto Star and the National Post featuring Ministers including the Hon. Bill Morneau, the Hon. John McCallum and the Hon. Bardish Chagger and entrepreneurs like Tony Lacavera, Sarah Prevette, Allen Lau and Waneek Horn-Miller and industry anchors like Uber, Microsoft, UPS and Intuit; as well as policy hack-a-thons with Ministers and Parliamentary Standing Committees, this is an opportunity for entrepreneurs to build the future of Canada. Join us for the day and for the evening Startup Soiree and help us to make history for Canada’s entrepreneurship community.
