To Gather, Episode 2

August 15, 2020

For this session, we were joined in the studio over live video by Philippe Telio, the founder of StartupFest.

StartupFest usually draws thousands of attendees to Montreal’s Old Port of a truly unique in person experience which brings together cutting edge tech companies with financiers, media outlets and more.

In the wake of C19, Philippe and his team had to make tough decisions about how to continue producing the 2020 StartupFest and in this session we learn how they embraced a mixed-format with great use of live-streamed video feeds from an actual venue with limited in-person audience.

*Want to learn more about how the StartupFest put this year’s show together? We recommend reading this post on their website.
