Founders who pledge become Upside Members, joining a community of like-minded peers who support each other's growth and success
We host private, curated events for the CEOs of our Member companies, which regularly receive scores over 90% on value for founders (and on more than one occasion have been described as, 'the best networking event I've ever been to'). Our core events are hosted in Toronto, while regional events and conference meetups occur in major city centres across Canada such as Montreal and Vancouver.
