About Event

​As part of the Startup Women 2024 program, Startup Canada will facilitate industry-specific advisory circles once a month between February and November. Hosted by Isabel Nolan, Program Manager for Startup Women, these sessions will feature expert talks from late-stage founders, a panel discussion with support organizations within the industry and networking breakout rooms with attendees and speakers. This close-door, virtual meetup will give women-identifying entrepreneurs all across Canada a sense of community and support. 


Our mission with Industry Advisory Circles is to give women-identifying entrepreneurs the chance to connect with and learn from industry experts and later stage founders in the Science & Technology space, share resources in real time, and learn about ecosystem support. 

​​This session will be hosted on Zoom meetings. We encourage all attendees to have their camera on and engage throughout the session and we will provide space for attendees to ask their questions.
