TechStars Toronto recently hosted a Demo Day for its second Toronto cohort. The companies pitching and presenting have completed 13 weeks of the accelerator. The event featured several diverse companies that are a part of the program, which runs out of WeWork in downtown Toronto.
TechStars Toronto operates in partnership with Real Ventures and focuses on building mentor relationships, fundraising, and accelerating growth. A wide range of tech companies took part in the Demo Day, including Proof, a company that came from the Yukon to participate in TechStars Toronto and aims to digitize government processes, as well as Korapay, a cross-border payments solution based in Nigeria.
Other organizations that pitched at the event include Eddy Travels, an AI-powered travel assistant, Balance, a self-serve investment platform, and Inkblot Therapy, which connects clients with mental health counsellors and life coaches using proprietary algorithms.
Sunil Sharma, TechStars Toronto managing director, opened the evening, explaining how Toronto has become a “global tech powerhouse” that is home to some of the best universities in the world and that has been creating more tech jobs than any city in North America.
