Canada’s Next Top Startup Startup was designed to bring resources, exposure, and most importantly support to Canadian start-ups across the country.
We understand that running a start-up is not easy work. It takes time, effort, and determination to reach that next level. At the same time, there are untold levels of stress, mental health barriers, and other issues that start-ups experience along the way.
Why are we Doing This?
Our goal at Influence Digest is to foster a community in which no start-up feels alone or left out. Regardless of their industry, there will always be a helping hand at Influence Digest.
The first season of Canada’s Next Startup is an opportunity for your company to show the Canadian start-up ecosystem that you are the next big start-up.
Theme: “Letter to my Younger Self”
This is an opportunity to learn from some of the world’s best entrepreneurs, creatives, artists, and corporate executives as they write a letter to their younger selves.
The purpose of these letters is to expose younger entrepreneurs to insights and lessons on the journey that they are about to embark on. It is these insights that will give the Millennials the support, motivation, and understanding of what they are up against.
Theme: An inside look at the startup life
Of the 6 finalists selected to compete at the main event, our video crew will create a short film on each start-up.
This is an opportunity for aspiring entrepreneurs and creatives to get a first-hand look at to what really goes in the day-to-day lives of start-ups.
