VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Sept. 15, 2016) - TIMIA Capital Corp. ("TIMIA" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:TCA) is excited to announce its lead sponsorship role at the upcoming SAAS NORTH conference.
SAAS NORTH, taking place in Ottawa from Nov. 30 to Dec. 1, is Canada's first event designed to connect top founders, investors and executives in the rapidly growing and increasingly essential software-as-a-service industry.
TIMIA, a specialty finance company helping build out Canada's technology ecosystem through its innovative revenue finance model, was an early supporter of the launch of the event, founded by L-SPARK, Canada's only SaaS Accelerator, and Cube Business Media Inc.
"SAAS NORTH is an opportunity to bring together the best and brightest in the sector," says Greg Smith, Chief Investment Officer at TIMIA.
Smith said SAAS NORTH will build and strengthen Canada's technology industry, and in turn help it better compete worldwide.
"Raising the game in Canada - while also making the SaaS ecosystem more globally competitive - will not only produce better companies, but also better investment opportunities and ultimately, better returns," Smith said.
Cube Business Media says it's seeing increased demand for technology events like SAAS NORTH, which offer actionable conversations with leading industry founders and investors.
"We've never seen such a positive a response for a first-year event," says Mark Stephenson, President of Cube Business Media Inc., noting that early early-bird tickets are already sold out.
"In all my years of experience in the conference industry, this is the first event where tickets sold instantly upon registration going live. Canada is clearly excited about SAAS NORTH."
The event has so far attracted top executives at companies such as SurveyMonkey, FreshBooks, Shopify, LEAGUE, and Vision Critical, as well as senior executives from Bessemer Venture Partners, HubSpot and Hootsuite.
L-SPARK, the event's presenting sponsor, said SAAS NORTH is an opportunity for Canadian startups to showcase their technology, gain insights from industry peers, and attract investment to help them reach their next level of growth.
