Startupong, which is expecting over 800 participants this year, is a ping pong tournament aimed at bringing together Toronto’s startup community. Past participants have included members from Wattpad, Checkout51, Freshbooks, and Influitive.
Randy Frisch, a co-founder and the COO of Uberflip says Startupong is an opportunity for Toronto’s startup community to get together in the spirit of giving back as all proceeds from admissions will be donated to the SickKids Foundation.
“We’re proud of what Startupong has become and the impact that it’s had in connecting the tech startup community here in Toronto,” said Yoav Schwartz, the CEO and co-founder of Uberflip. “As our company continues to grow, we recognize that we have a responsibility to our community and we are committed to giving back.”
Startupong will take place on March 14 at SPiN ping pong social club in Toronto. This year’s general admission ticket is $10, through which participants can enjoy two drinks and appetizers.
Participants can also register in the doubles ping pong tournament for $40 per teams of two to four players. Teams of 10 can sign up for the VIP ‘Startup Team’ package, which includes 10 guaranteed admission tickets and co-sponsorship opportunities.
