About TON


The Ottawa Network is a not-for-profit member-driven organization that connects entrepreneurs, academics, industry professionals, students, and government agencies to grow innovative businesses in the Ottawa region. 

We partner with local incubators, accelerators, government and local businesses to co-host, promote and create events that provide networking and educational opportunities for entrepreneurs in and around the Ottawa region.


Our members come from a wide cross section of the Ottawa business, academic, and entrepreneurial community. We work in government, large businesses, small businesses and startups. We are students and leaders, startup builders and innovators. 



Membership is FREE, as are all of our events. We understand bootstrapping to our core and want to create a community and resource where all entrepreneurs feel welcome. 


Join us  in our mission to build a stronger entrepreneurial community in Ottawa by participating in our events and discussions. Join our LinkedIN group to become a member and receive regular updates.



TON of Demos!

A TON of Demos is a forum for Ottawa entrepreneurs to pitch their ideas, businesses, and products or services to fellow entrepreneurs, mentors, and members of the Ottawa business community.

The event is a great opportunity for you to meet some great people in the Ottawa startup community, hear some pitches, and provide your feedback.

Each presentation is followed by a Q&A period where members try to help the entrepreneur advance their venture with ideas, connections, and helpful suggestions.

Any time left over will be dedicated to open conversation and networking with the presenters or others in the meeting.
