Women-in-Tech Wednesday – The Canada 150 Edition

July 5, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The CVCA, BDC Capital and McRock Capital are inviting you to join Canadian-based female tech investors and founders on Wednesday, July 5th for a fun, informal gathering celebrating Canada’s 150th anniversary while recognizing Canada’s growing group of female investors and entrepreneurs!

This informal grassroots-style celebration is piggy-backing off an already successful monthly networking get-together that Toronto-based women-in-tech have been participating in over the last year. The event, which has informally been named “WIT Wednesday”, brings together many female tech investors and high-growth female entrepreneurs in Toronto on the first Wednesday of every month. The location changes monthly and attendees each bring a bottle of wine or a light snack for a few hours of informal and casual networking.

In the spirit of Canada Day and Canada’s sesquicentennial, the core group of women-in-tech involved in the original WIT Wednesday event series are striving to bring together 150 female investors, entrepreneurs and industry stakeholders across the country to celebrate the growth and success of Canada’s innovation economy; notably the strong and skilled female investors and founders and the growing number of females working in the ecosystem.

The theme of the event is about recognizing the importance gender diversity plays in the innovation economy. Come celebrate WIT Wednesday – The Canada 150 Edition with women and men across the country. It is fun and casual.

The event(s) will be taking place at various locations across Canada. Each jurisdiction will bring together up to 50 investors and high-growth female founders, easily attaining the goal of 150 or more women-in-tech marking the day coast-to-coast. Each event will be held from 5pm-7pm in each of the local time zones.
