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 other 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.

What’s Happening?

The next TON of Demos will be an in-person event, and will feature two entrepreneurs who will present their great ideas.

Each presentation will be followed by a Q&A period, moderated by our event facilitator.

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

The Ottawa Network has been collaborating with subject matter experts from the Ottawa entrepreneur community to organize a new and exciting series of TON-of-Demos style events.

These events are a great opportunity for you to meet some great people in the Ottawa startup community, learn something, and share your experience.

What’s Happening?

Events will be held online and each event will have a theme selected to be of use to both aspiring and active entrepreneurs.

Each theme will be explored by two presenters who are either experts in their field, or have had an interesting experience with the theme.

As in our TON-of Demos events, each presenter will cover the theme for 10-15 minutes and take questions from the audience moderated by our event coordinator.


The presentations will be interspersed with two 10 minute networking sessions moderated by members of TON's board.



Moderator: to be announced

The event will be held on Zoom.

We’re asking attendees to sign on starting at 6:45PM and no later than 7:00PM
