A Monthly Twitter Chat to Support Entrepreneurs

What is it?

From 12-1pm ET, join us on Twitter to connect with fellow entrepreneurs and learn from their experiences. Each month, we tackle a new topic and provide you with the opportunity to share your knowledge, ask questions and meet new entrepreneurs from coast to coast to coast.

Why join?

Too often, entrepreneurs are not aware of the support, programs and people who exist to help them on their journeys. Through #StartupChats, we not only bring awareness to resources for Canadian business owners, but help facilitate relationships between entrepreneurs and support organizations.

How to participate

Follow the steps below to participate in a #StartupChat event.

1. Login to Twitter

On the last Wednesday of every month, be ready to join us for 12pm ET. Head over to our Twitter page (@Startup_Canada) and get ready to say Hello at 12pm under the hashtag #StartupChats.

2. Join the conversation

To find the hashtag, type #StartupChats in Twitter’s search bar and press Enter. Click on "Latest" to enter the conversation in real-time.

3. Reply or ask questions

Look out for the question graphics from our account (@Startup_Canada) and click on the reply buttons to share your answer or ask a question. Be sure to include #StartupChats in all of your replies so everyone can see your tweets.

4. New question every 5 minutes

New questions are posted every five minutes from our account (@Startup_Canada). Question 1 will be posted at 12:05pm, Question 2 will be posted at 12:10pm, and so on until 12:45pm.

5. Open conversation

The last 15 minutes of the chat is an open conversation and is a great time to tag other participants, interact with our host and experts, and tweet any remaining questions or thoughts that you have with the hashtag #StartupChats.

6. Wrap up and register for next week’s chat

At 1pm ET, the chat ends. We encourage you to head back to this page and sign up for the next chat that interests you!
