Are you an entrepreneur with a great idea? The PITCH competition invites early-stage startups who want to take their companies to the next stage to participate. On May 21, 60 startups will take on the challenge to pitch their company to a panel of judges, before ultimately being subject to an audience and final judging vote to crown the winner on May 23.
For those looking for extra conference-related activities after hours, Collision has organized a series of events each night around the city. To encourage attendees to connect and get to know a few of Toronto’s many neighbourhoods, evening events will take place in Kensington Market, the Distillery District, King West and Liberty Village.
