Cascadia Connect is a reverse-pitch event that provides forward-looking organizations in the Cascadia Innovation Corridor (Vancouver – Seattle – Portland) a platform for pitching their pain points and technology needs to both local and international solution providers.
The presenters will be decision makers who know their organization’s procurement needs. They represent major utilities, transit authorities, municipalities and post-secondary institutions that have increasingly aggressive renewable energy and zero emission plans – and work to accelerate the deployment of much-needed projects.
The audience will include technology companies whose products or services are able to meet and fulfill these challenges head on. The quick pitch format will be fast moving and engaging, with a brief networking session immediately following. After this networking break, Global Affairs Canada will support additional 1-on-1 meetings between companies.
10:00AM–12:00PM: Pitch Session at the GLOBE Innovation Expo Theatre
12:00PM–12:30PM: Networking Break
12:30PM–2:00PM: 1-on-1 Meetings at the Export Cafe
