What is BaseCamp?
What is Preflight?
The number 1 thing we hear from startups is "How do I get Investors?". Randy Thomspson, CEO of VA Angels will walk you through how to get your startup 'Investor Ready'. Plus at the end you will get an opportunity to pitch to a room full of investors!
There is no such thing as a good idea or bad idea, the only thing that matters is execution. If you have a startup idea or just beginning, Preflight will show you how to execute your startup and if it will make money. Preflight is facilitated by Calgary entrepreneurs & supporting businesses.
Students & AcceleratorYYC Resident Members save 50% on Preflight & BaseCamp!
