Startup Canada's 2020 Canadian Export Challenge is going digital.

COVID-19 has put entrepreneurs across the globe in an unprecedented position of uncertainty. Given border closures and the international response to this pandemic, the export community is navigating uncharted territory. 

This year, in addition to its historical elements, CXC will aim to be a space for Canadian exporters and industry partners to come together and provide support to each other, as we all navigate the resulting export environment. 

In the leadup to CXC in September, Satrtup Canad will be hosting a series of digital bootcamps with our partners to help entrepreneurs get export-ready and learn how to craft a perfect video pitch.   

This fall’s regional events will combine a series of live stream presentations, breakout sessions, a virtual growth lounge, interactive learning—in addition to a digital pitch competition.

Startup Canda is excited to bring you Canada’s first nationwide, virtual pitch competition. In the past, they’ve been limited by geography. In this digital format, they hope to be able to reach entrepreneurs from all across Canada.


From September 14th to September 21st, 2020, Startup Canada will host 5 regional digital events:
