Active in the Ottawa Startup Community

A couple weeks back Tologix was fortunate enough to be one of 10-local ICT companies to pitch a VC-panel brought forward by OCRI and the Canadian Trade Commissioner Service at an event titled “Canadian Regional Boot Camp for Technology Start-Ups featuring Silicon Valley experts and investors“.

The structure of the event had workshops supported with networking events that offered informative & credible feedback from fellow entrepreneurs, businesspeople, and investors alike. Aside from issues surrounding macro-economic variables that are outside just about everyone’s control nowadays, several entrepreneurs we spoke with at the Bootcamp had feedback on a very real challenge that is in the startup story– and that leads us to this week…

This Wednesday April 8th, Dan Wilton our President & CEO, will be on a 3×10 panel speaking at theCodeFactory as part of an OttawaNetwork event discussing “Bootstrapping For Success”.

Flagged as a critical ingredient to ensure early success – this bootstrapping discussion is casual and being tailored to fellow entrepreneurs in the Ottawa network, highlighting lessons learned, customer-funded growth, and focus on bootstrapping.

Without a doubt, every startup we have encountered over our careers has expressed similar challenges at one stage or another. For the next short while bootstrapping is a reality to any startup – if done right, such an opportunity will yield fantastic results as it builds the early culture of the organization, strengthens the plan, and enhances team focus.

We look forward to meeting all those who attend.
