The Canadian Digital Media Network’s (CDMN) Canada 3.0 Conference this October takes place in Calgary, where the focus will be on Canada’s energy and technology sectors, to ‘build the technology supply chain for the energy industry’.

We just came across a pretty sweet deal that Canadian startups won’t want to miss: as part of the promotions for the festival, the CDMN is offering to bring “select startups” to the event, “and where applicable, showcase their technology in the Telus Innovation Pavilion.”

“We will be looking for companies with products relevant to the energy industry who are still at an early stage and would not be able to attend the conference on their own,” wrote CDMN.

As part of the deal, the CDMN will hook up the selected startups with $750 to go towards their trip, which can likely pay for one person’s flight and a sizeable chunk of their hotel costs. As well, they’ll receive one ticket to the event and a 1/2 booth space (5’ x 10’) in the Innovation Pavilion.

The CDMN’s partnership with the Canadian Energy Supply Chain Forum (CESCF) and their support of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) means that many major energy companies in Canada will be in attendance – offering technology companies a unique chance to network with energy sector executives, as well as an opportunity to learn from other companies who are already part of the energy supply chain.

Chances are most of the Canadian startups that fall within the circumference of the energy and tech circles are probably already located in Alberta or surrounding provinces. However this promotion will give any company in the field anywhere in the country an unforgettable experience.

The deadline for companies to apply is August 22 and we will announce those selected on September 2. Get your application started here
