Comments from last year's version of the boot camp:
"The Moncton Boot Camp was a great experience - each speaker provided unique insight into the startup and funding environment in their US region, and their feedback during the pitching rounds was honest and supportive. I'd encourage other young tech startups to take advantage of these sessions to hone their pitching skills and learn about opportunities beyond our provincial boarders." - Tim Burke, Tether
''DFAIT Bootcamp is a must-attend event to showcase your company to top calibre panelists from the business and venture capital community." - Saeed El-Darahali , Simply Cast
''The Bootcamp brought many interesting speakers from the major US centers. The follow up program organized in California was life changing due to the contacts we made and their perspectives on doing business globally .'' - Keith McIntosh, PQA
