We’re starting a busy week in St. John’s, which will feature the Invest Newfoundland and Labrador conference on Wednesday and several other events as well.

On Tuesday, I will conduct a presentation on the metrics of the Atlantic Canadian startup community. It will focus in on Newfoundland and Labrador and dive into data on such areas as funding, revenue, employment and others. I’ll deliver the presentation (I’ve already given similar presentations this year in Fredericton and Charlottetown) at the Emera Innovation Exchange at 10:30 am. The presentation is free to attend. You can register here.

On Wednesday, Invest NL will be held all day at the Alt Hotel. Hosted by Invest Atlantic, the conference will showcase the province’s startups and provide them with a chance to network with local and visiting investors, mentors and service providers. Tickets are available here

Then on Saturday, Springboard Atlantic and the Creative Destruction Lab Atlantic will host the Lab Crawl – a chance to meet up with members of the science and startup communities at a local pub. It will take place at The Biermarkt on Harbour Drive starting at 4:30 pm. You can register here.

The organizers are actually holding Lab Crawl in several cities. There was one in Charlottetown last week, and there will be a Lab Crawl on Thursday in Fredericton at the King Street Ale House.
