Today StartUp Canada launches the country’s first national entrepreneurship tour and campaign aimed at build Canada into a StartUp Nation -- and Paper.li is proud to be an official media partner.
Co-founded by Victoria Lennox and media tech entrepreneur Cyprian Szalankiewicz, StartUp Canada is a grassroots entrepreneurial movement designed to foster growth and cooperation between entrepreneurs, and put Canada on the global Start-up map.
Working together with organizations, individuals and communities, the tour will travel Canada coast to coast over the next 6 months, holding more than 30 town halls across the nation and engaging more than 25,000 entrepreneurs to develop a local and national 3-year action plan and a white paper toward a national entrepreneurship strategy.
We're really excited to be an official media partner and part of StartUp's massive media strategy covering the tour. We'll be bringing readers fresh campaign news, daily and weekly, via two publications:
- The Daily WiRE, a daily publication focused on the Canadian entrepreneurial community
- The Start-up Canada Weekly Update, a dedicated town hall news publication documenting the campaign as Startup tours the nation.
You can learn more about StartUp Canada's dream, and team, in our interview with co-founder Victoria Lennox. Be sure to follow the tour and all the happenings via their Paper.lis, and on Twitter and Facebook.
We wish StartUp Canada and fellow entrepreneurs a great start and much success!
