An unFOURgettable celebration
This year we celebrated our 4th year of supporting high-growth tech companies from our HQ in Regina. We did this by doing what we do best; bringing the community together and welcoming a new wave of tech founders with 24 Hour Startup.
Swapping the usual startup casual for a more sleek and elevated vibe, guests showed up and showed off to celebrate in style with us.
Wasting no time!
After being greeted by a nice glass of bubbly, we kicked off the evening with a welcome from our Incubator Manager, Jordan McFarlen, and greetings from the CEO of Conexus Credit Union, Celina Philpot.
From there, we dove straight into the action with the 24 Hour Startup finale. All 7 teams that participated in 24 Hour Startup had the chance to pitch in front of 250+ people and a panel of expert judges for a total of $7,000 in cash prizes; including people’s choice which was voted on by the audience.
To celebrate turning 4, we raised a glass and announced some of the major milestones we were able to accomplish over the past 4 years with a little help from some of the founders we work with daily. These metrics are an accumulation of the effort they put into their startups day in and day out, and we are so grateful to play a part in their journey of START-ing, GROW-ing, and SCALE-ing their businesses.
