MTL NewTech brings Montreal startups to Pycon Startup Row
For the first time ever, Pycon will be in Montreal this year, from April 9-17.
Pycon tickets are already sold out, and with more than 2000 attendees, it will be Montreal's biggest developer conference.
Present along with Google and Facebook
MTL NewTech is partnering with Pycon this year to bring one lucky Montreal startup to Pycon, to present alongside with Google, Facebook, Stripe, heroku, Microsoft, Mozilla and many other technology companies.
Tuesday March 4th, we're inviting Montreal startups to present their startups to a panel of investors and VCs. Presentations will last 5mn, including a demonstration of the product. There will be various startups at various stages of growth, from new startups looking for traction to growing startups. Statups presenting should be less than 2 years old, less than 15 employees, and must use Python in one way or another (front-end, back-end, etc.).
In addition to the official booth at Pycon, the winning startup will also win a ticket at the International Startup Festival, in collaboration with Startup Festival.
If you are interested in presenting, please get a startup ticket.
MTL NewTech Pycon edition will be hosted at Café République March 4th from 6 to 9pm - a now classic venue for Startup Drinks and MTL NewTech.
