About the Global Meetup

At the Global Meetup we leverage the power of our worldwide network, to scale selected promising innovations from 1M to 100M in valuation. Because together we can solve 21st century challenges.


The Global Meetup is an annual event, hosted in a different city each year. During this three-day retreat we bring together innovators, policy-makers, partners and investors for deal making sessions, in-depth discussions and partnership creation. The Global Meetup typically ends with our grand finals of the Global Startup Competition, with the winners of our local selection rounds coming to the event to participate in the finals.


This year, the Global Meetup is hosted in Montréal, CA.
