Startup Game Night
Posted 3 years ago by Toronto Charities / 125 views
Think you know startups? You may work in the Toronto startup scene, watch Silicon Valley, and read TechCrunch and BetaKit religiously, but do you really know startups? Find out at the third annual Startup Game Night in Toronto. Hosted by the team at Eighty-Eight, our startup trivia will test your knowledge of Toronto startups, startups in Hollywood, and startup culture. So brush up on your Erlich Bachman quotes, re-read Elon Musk’s manifestos, and get ready to vie for the title of Startup Trivia champion.
Gather a team of four coworkers or friends, or register as an individual and get paired up with other entrepreneurs, startup fanatics, and investors. The winning team will get a trophy, the title of Toronto’s smartest startup folks, and a prize pack featuring some of our favourite players in Toronto’s startup scene.
Your $20 ticket gets you food (or bring a team of 4 for $75), unlimited drinks (until we run out), surprise snacks, and a chance at an awesome prize if your team wins.
All proceeds benefit Baycrest Health Sciences, which will go towards medical research on Alzheimer’s and brain health. Special thanks to our venue host Wattpad for providing space for the event.
