July 20th New forum + 2 events this week

Sent on July 20th


Three things this week:

We launched a new community forum

We’re building a supportive community of founders and investors in Canada. This is a community forum that anyone can participate in and help grow.

It’s powered by Discourse, open source forum software that has many great built in features, as well as many plugins to extend its capabilities.

As well as public info, there are a variety of special interest members-only groups, such as the Pitch Deck Reviewers group, who help give peer feedback on investment pitch decks (more on this below).

Wednesday July 22nd Founder Story & Product Demo with Founded

This Wednesday at 11am PDT, we’re hosting a Founder Story & Product Demo.

Founded is an online Canadian legal platform for managing your business, from incorporation to cap table management plus much more.

Meet Derek Hopfner, one of the founders of Founded, as we discuss the company and the platform, and demo what its capabilities are.

We will be joined by startup lawyer Lindsay Clark from Blakes, which uses a custom version of Founded within the firm.

Bring your incorporation, corporate structure, employee options, or other company formation and management questions!

Pitch Deck Review on Thursday July 23rd

Some of you have been on our pitch deck reviews before and should have gotten an email about that earlier this week. We’ll go for about an hour starting at 12pm PDT to give feedback to a founder on their investment deck.

If you’d like to give peer feedback like this, request an invite to become a reviewer.
