To fuel business growth and success, the most critical aspect of all is funding – raising money is a major milestone, for any startup.

Presented by RIC Centre, Angel One and City of Brampton, this signature event provides entrepreneurs with the opportunity to pitch to experienced investors, connect with strategic partners and network with the local innovation community.
