Sendwithus created Startup Slam to showcase Victoria’s burgeoning tech sector and provide insightful and informative workshops to young professionals. In 2014, the University of Victoria hosted the first Startup Slam and were joined by 60 attendees. Last year, over 350 students, developers, and entrepreneurs came together to share ideas, knowledge, and expertise.

Workshops will be offered on startup engineering, early stage entrepreneurship, and product validation and design.
