In May 2012, Startup Canada, Canada’s first-ever, entrepreneurial-led national movement, visited Windsor as it toured through the country. Focused on encouraging and supporting the entrepreneurial culture, Startup Canada provided entrepreneurs all across the country with a strong voice. Now in its final weeks of the tour, Startup Canada is proud to welcome Blab Media as a national sponsor. The tech-savvy duo, Jessica Apolloni and Katie Stokes, will be offering their social media expertise to help Startup Canada engage and empower their online community.
“It’s a great feeling knowing that the services we offer can help give entrepreneurs just like us a voice,” says Katie Stokes, co-founder of Blab Media. “We’re honored to be working alongside Startup Canada and representing Windsor on a national scale.”
Since launching its National Tour in March 2012, the Startup Canada team has visited more than 30 cities and met with nearly 14,000 entrepreneurs through Town Halls and Fringe Events. Recaps of these events have been captured and shared on the Startup Canada website. The tour’s remaining stops in Ontario and British Columbia will take place in September, with a grand finale event in Vancouver on September 21.
“One of the goals of this tour is to engage 25,000 Canadians in a conversation that fuels a vibrant entrepreneurial culture from coast to coast, says Victoria Lennox, Co-Founder of Startup Canada. “I’m very excited to work with Blab Media to expand our reach through social media and enable Canadian startup communities from all sectors, regions and demographics to participate in this unique national movement.”
The social media campaign will cover a two week span and will roll out August 20th. To get involved, share your ideas and enter to win prizes, you can follow @startupcanada on Twitter, join the Startup Canada Campaign group on Linkedin, and find them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/StartupCanada.
