In a couple of weeks, Innovation Guelph (IG) will be all aboard the Startup Train.

Initiated by local startup star and creator of Guelph-based co-working hub 349 Brydon Gilliss in 2011, Startup Train connects startups, the startup curious, investors and business advisors from Kitchener-Waterloo, Guelph and Toronto inside a couple of train cars en route to Montréal’s International Startup Festival

Tickets include train fare to Montréal (use your new connections to find your own way home!), food, drinks and an all access pass to Startup Festival’s many sessions, speakers and events.

Update: Tickets including full meal service are now 100% sold out. Check out the Startup Train website for additional ticket availability.


Innovation Guelph is thrilled to return as a Startup Train sponsor. IG CEO Jamie Doran and Front of House Coordinator, Sasha Odesse, will be reporting live from the train and Startup Festival via Twitter and our blog.

We’re also bringing along a few friends for the experience, including EyeCarrot, FLOW Office WisdomPlantola, and TeachIt Community.

Follow us on Twitter for an inside look at the festival, and mark your calendar for 2015!
