Cottage Pitchfest

Cottage Pitchfest is an annual by-invitation event where the L-SPARK Accelerator cohort, and select early stage companies from our community, pitch their company to invited investors from Canada and the United States as well as to a number of corporate partners.

Attendees will sail through the Thousand Islands area by boat, while enjoying lunch and networking.

Cottage pitchfest 2019 is now over. Express your interest in this invite-only event for 2020 below

Our L-SPARK concept for a somewhat more relaxed summer PitchFest for key investors has proven extremely popular. An influential, invite-only crowd, from Canada and the US, networking in a unique environment and learning about impressive new tech start-ups. What a great way to explore your next SaaS deal flow. This report shares some of the latest details. I hope we will see you next summer. You won’t be disappointed…
