Check out our video recap of the 2020 Summer Startup Summit:
On August 20th, 2020, Startup Zone hosted our 4th annual Summer Summit (and their first ever digital summit)!
The Summer Startup Summit featured speakers such as Amber Mac, Katelyn Bourgoin, Eric Windeler, Lisa Haydon, and more, discussing everything from marketing, to community engagement, to sales! It brought together community partners from across the province, and business incubators, accelerators, and innovation hubs from across the country. Bringing together this diverse group of voices and backgrounds helped us foster a community of entrepreneurship far past the walls of Startup Zone.
We are proud to say that this year’s summer summit featured 25% BIPOC speakers, 15% LGBTQ+ speakers, and 89% female speakers. Among our speakers and attendees, we had representation from 5 provinces, with 36% of the attendees representing provinces outside of PEI. The summit was featured in The Employment Journey of PEI, Entrevestor, and various blog posts. This exposure led the Summer Summit to become a record-breaking Startup Zone event – with the highest number of attendees, and the largest reach that any of our events have ever had!
