About the Event:
Power Hour is Rainforest’s ambitious goal to connect people with solutions to their problems. Working in small groups with other innovative & entrepreneurial individuals from the ecosystem you’ll be able to both get & give free help in this connected & safe environment.
Bring a problem you’re facing in your startup and be prepared to describe it succinctly to the group. Can’t think of a problem? Bring a new business idea & we’ll help you validate it!
Building a culture of trust while inspiring leadership & role models among everyone, Rainforest is a community driven movement growing the tech and innovation economy in Alberta.

Startup Drinks & Pitches
*Pitching opportunities are for entrepreneurs with ideas that are highly scalable & tech-enabled. Please do not enter to pitch if you are a consultant or service provider.*
Come & practice your pitch to a group of fellow entrepreneurs, innovators & community members in a casual, no pressure setting. Whether you are looking for a technical co-founder or just want to share your idea, join us!
Apply to pitch via Eventbrite by Tuesday, August 25th at noon! Your 1-minute verbal pitch (no slides allowed!) should focus on:
• What problem you’re solving
• How you are going to solve that problem
• What help you need to make it happen (ie: looking for a technical co-founder, looking for beta users, interested in connecting with a supplier, etc.)
This is a casual environment for entrepreneurs at all stages to practice talking about their ideas and seek support from the community.
* Pitching opportunities are for entrepreneurs only. Please do not enter to pitch if you are a service provider.*
