What is this thing?

For our fifth year in a row we’ve booked first class train cars to ship startups, investors, and the startup curious from the Toronto area to Montreal’s Startupfest.

Joining us are some of Canada’s best-known investors and advisors. We supply drinks and food; you meet, connect and spend focused time with the rockstars of the startup scene. You’ll arrive at the festival focused and fearless!

Who was on last year's train?

Why the train?

You can attend Startupfest with a few friends, attend some talks, walk the floor, bump into some new people but is that the best way to get the most out of Startupfest?

Let’s face it, you no longer have a boss paying you to attend conferences. Simply “attending” Startupfest isn’t enough. The Startup Train is your opportunity to get organized with 100+ Ontario startup junkies ahead of time. Together we’re going to bleed every drop of opportunity available to us. Our pre-events, online shared space, Ontario Startup Tent, etc. are all geared towards us leveraging the real opportunity that Startupfest presents.

And the best part? Band of Coders Startup Train tickets INCLUDE your Startupfest registration! There is simply no better or economical way to do the festival. Make the most of your travel time and arrive focused and fearless! This is one train you DON’T want to miss!
