About this Event

When building a startup, you need to hone a wide range of skills - quickly.

RIC Centre's Startup Bootcamp is designed for early stage entrepreneurs who need help getting their business up and running.

This event connects entrepreneurs with professional service providers to help you learn the fundamentals of legal planning, IP strategy, financial planning and funding rudiments to help you get a solid start to your business.

We’ve forged strong partnerships with top tier organizations (such as Bereskin & Parr LLP, Pallett Valo LLP and BDO LLP) in the Peel Region. Professional representatives from these organizations meet with our clients to thoroughly understand their business and offer strategic advice that caters to every entrepreneur’s needs and requirements. Each representative is committed to fostering innovation, and working with entrepreneurs who want to achieve that goal.

This is ideal for you if:

  • You have a tech-based business
  • Are in the early stages of building your startup
  • Want to learn smart business fundamentals

After this event, you'll have:

  • A better understanding of business fundamentals to get your startup up and running
  • Connections to top-tier professional service providers
  • Access to a one-on-one follow up for more detail strategic advisory
