Get ready to meet six up-and-coming entrepreneurs, and gain valuable insights from a panel of industry and subject matter experts. Curious about the art of investor pitching? Be ready to take notes!

As an attendee, you will have access to:

  • Q&As, Audience Voting, and in-session chat;
  • Speaker and pitcher profiles, and;
  • the opportunity to DM whoever you’d like.

If you haven’t been to a Buzzit-hosted event before, this is a fantastic Vancouver-born event platform that puts the audience first. You will be able to access all profiles before the event, pre-submit questions, and even return after the event has finished to remind yourself of who was there and what you were chatting about in the DM’s.
