The sixth edition of Startup Camp Montreal is set for May 6th. The event features five startup pitches. The selected startups pay nothing to present, and also get a free coaching session where they get feedback and suggested improvements on their pitch. Quality in the past has been excellent with startups from Montreal, Toronto, New York and beyond applying.
Montreal animation writer and blogger Emru Townsend has been diagnosed with leukemia and needs a bone marrow donor. Emru needs your help.
Finding out if you’re a match requires just a cheek swab or simple blood test, and you are not under any obligation to follow through later.
Emru’s chances of finding a suitable donor are complicated by a lack of registered donors from minority groups. While the chances are higher if the potential donor is of African or West Indian descent, Emru’s match can come from anyone, from any ethnic background, in any country. And if you’re not a match for Emru, you may end up helping somebody else.
