Good morning, Toronto startups and entrepreneurs! You may have noticed that the newsletter looks a little different this week. Techstars Startup Digests have moved to a new platform, which will hopefully serve you better. Same content, same curator, and with a different layout.
As with last week, our focus is support. Many startups are struggling, and there’s help, even if it’s only advice. There are more events after the newsletter.
If you’re interested in offering your support, the Prepr Network is hosting the Beyond COVID-19 Global Open Innovation Challenge
. There are four open challenges: business, prevention, education, and community. Build a virtual team, create a project, and work towards a solution related to a challenge. You’ll also earn rewards while building your skills, and supplement your portfolio with a real-world project. You have until June 10 to work on your project pitches.
For those of you working on a product or service idea, gBETA Toronto’s accelerator is recruiting for their next program
. They’re looking for startups in healthcare, IoT, and clean tech to join their free 7-week program — complete with mentorship, access to investors, and $1M+ in deals and perks. Don’t miss the June 5th application deadline!
Have a great week, and stay well!
