VentureBeat and DEMO heading to Canada — calling all awesome entrepreneurs!

NOTE: GrowthBeat -- VentureBeat's provocative new marketing-tech event -- is a week away! We've gathered the best and brightest to explore the data, apps, and science of successful marketing. Get the full scoop here, and grab your tickets while they last.

Starting next week, I’ll be heading up to Canada as part of my quest to find the top entrepreneurs from around the world to launch their new technology at DEMO, the conference VentureBeat co-produces twice a year.

We’ve partnered up with Rogers Ventures, which will be making three stops with us around Canada during the next four weeks. First off, we will be in Vancouver this coming Thursday, June 23. If you’re in the area and would like to come present your company and receive feedback from the DEMO team as well as a few senior partners from Rogers, please fill out this form to apply. We’ll be selecting ten companies to come in throughout the day to meet at Bootup Labs (163 West Hastings, Suite 200, Vancouver).

Following the presentations, we’ll be hosting a party at Republic (958 Granville Street, Vancouver) for the entire Vancouver tech crowd. Join us along with local entrepreneurs and VCs, and a group of DEMO alumni and past attendees. Please register for this event here. The first 50 people through the door will get a drink on us.

Our next stop will be Toronto, the following week, on Tuesday, June 28. We’ll be having a similar day of presentations at the Rogers Ventures offices (350 Bloor Street East, Toronto), as well as another party for the Toronto tech scene at The Century Room (580 King West, Toronto). To apply for the day of presentations, please fill out this form, and to attend the evening party, you can register here.

Finally, on Friday, July 15, I’ll be speaking at Startup Festival in Montreal. While I’m in the area, I’ll be looking for more startups for DEMO, so if you are nearby and would like to present to myself, along with other members of the DEMO team and Rogers Ventures, we’ll be meeting at the Notman House (51 Sherbrooke West, Montreal). Apply by filling out this form.

Looking forward to seeing you in Canada soon!
