What is Startup Durham Region?
Startup Durham Region is a community of entrepreneurs on a mission to build an inclusive culture of momentum and success in Durham Region. One of the ways we accomplish this is by organizing monthly events in partnership with local community partners to provide value for local entrepreneurs. We also support entrepreneurs navigate the ecosystem to speed access to investment, support, resources, mentors, networks, information, talent and customers; and platforms as well as national exposure through our partner Startup Canada (www.startupcan.ca), who have already forged partnerships with national leaders like Quickbooks, Dell, Microsoft, UPS, and Scotia Bank who understand the value entrepreneurs bring to our economy.
