On Thursday, March 7, the IDEABOOST-Network Connect community reconvened at Watershed Partners in downtown Toronto, with the first Network Connect event of the year. After brief introductions, familiar faces and newcomers alike were matched up with mentors and then grouped into small huddles for peer-to-peer knowledge sharing.

Startup founders who attended not only received expert advice and guidance in various industries, but also participated in a peer exchange for an open, honest dialogue about the triumphs and challenges of the startup world.

“Each event in this series we run is custom-built for our Network Connect founders,” says Ana Serrano, Managing Director, IDEABOOST. “We ask detailed questions, determine their challenges and match them with the right people who are in a similar stage and/or can offer solutions. Network Connect is about community-building, mentoring and giving our founders a safe space to be authentic and give each other valuable feedback.”

Network Connect events happen quarterly and are open to all members of the IDEABOOST-Network Connect community. The next event will take place on June 4, so if you’re not yet a member, apply here so you don’t miss out.
