I will be in St. John’s early next week and taking part in a few events Tuesday that will feature Entrevestor’s startup research and my own seminar on media relations.
The first event is the presentation of our Atlantic Canada Startup Data report, which outlines the growth of the regional startup community, including such metrics as funding, revenue, employment and the like. And we will have a special focus on Newfoundland and Labrador.
This presentation will take place Tuesday, Nov. 26, at 10:30 am at Room 2007B of the Emera Innovation Exchange on Memorial University’s Signal Hill Campus. The talk will take about 45 minutes, and then there will be a Q&A session. You can register for the event here.
I’ll be back in the Innovation Exchange at 2 pm to present my Media Relations for Startups seminar to Genesis companies. The theme is that media relations can help you to reach customers, funders and supporters, but you have to be strategic in approaching media and clear in describing what you do.
In the evening, I will take part in the meeting of ConnectioNL, the new community group that encourages entrepreneurship in Newfoundland and Labrador. I’ll do a quick summary of my data presentation, for those who missed it in the morning, before the meeting turns to other business. The ConnectioNL meeting will be held at 6 pm at Clovelly Golf Course, 100 Golf Course Road, and you can register for it here.
It will be great to be in St. John’s again and I’m looking forward to linking up with as many founders as possible.
