The startup ecosystem continues to experience rapid growth across the globe and there’s no better way to dip your toes into this growing ecosystem than participating in Startup Open House.

Brought to you by the City of Toronto and Shopify, Startup Open House reemerges for its third year this Thursday, September 22. Startups in Toronto, Montreal, Quebec, Vancouver, and British Columbia will open their doors to curious neighbours, investors, students, and top talent from 3pm to 8pm.

We’re pleased to announce that Say Yeah will be participating in Startup Open House 2016 for our third consecutive year.

For visitors, Startup Open House is a chance to grab a beer or other beverage with founders and employees of growing startups, familiarize themselves with the startup industry, gain insight on the brilliant minds behind Toronto’s current innovative businesses, and in some cases, find a job!

In fact, Startup Open House has joined in partnership with Jobbio for this year’s Canadian events. Businesses/founders can connect with potential candidates by receiving/saving their CV through the app. Users can follow startups that they are interested in and directly apply to jobs.

For founders, Startup Open House is an opportunity to showcase to their local startup community what they do on a day-to-day basis, how the startup came about, and their current or future goals.

Participating alongside us (literally) in the 77 Florence St building are our friends at Little Rocket.

Little Rocket is a studio of creative problem solvers who plan solutions that launch businesses forward. Specializing in commerce, as the leading Shopify Plus Experts in Toronto, they use design, development, and digital marketing to make a big bang for their clients.

For Say Yeah, we’ve been operating as a startup and are now set for growth. We’re excited to show you our studio!

Startup Open House is one of the largest initiatives formed to unite and publicize startups in Canada. Since 2013, they have hosted seven editions, with over 10,000 participants and over 600 startups have signed up to be apart of the movement.

Let’s continue to support the evolution of startups together. See you on September 22!
