About: Toronto 2003

Springboard’s first program in Canada was an overwhelming success, thanks to the support of the CATA Alliance and our many sponsors and speakers. The Growth Capital Workshop at the University of Toronto featured keynotes and case studies from successful women entrepreneurs, as well as panels on positioning for growth and attracting the right investment sources. At the end of the day, six women entrepreneurs presented their two-minute ‘elevator’ pitch to a panel of investors.
