Expert DOJO Hosts Women & Black Founders from Canada

Expert DOJO will be hosting the Canadian government as they bring some of their top female founders and black founders from Canada to the United States. This is part of a program to help them both grow their businesses and also receive introductions to some of the top investors in Southern California. 

  • 12:30PM-2:30PM – Expert DOJO will host the Black founders with 1:1 meetings with investors where founders will meet with investors for 15 min each. *All of these meetings will be pre-scheduled with investors. 
  • 3:00PM-5:00PM: A different group of investors will come in to meet with the other group with the same format of 15 minute pitches each. 


This special reception is celebrating the importance of Canadian values of diversity, equity, and inclusion in the world of investment, startups, and business. Please join us in welcoming graduates of the Canadian Consulate’s ‘Women in Tech’ and ‘SoCal Black Tech Express’ startup accelerator programs. The Founders and CEOs of these companies will be present to discuss areas of partnership with SoCal-based investors, VCs, and corporations over drinks and light snacks. 

There will also be a delegation of Canadian VC funds and investors that include DEI in their investment proposition that are in town for the Santa Monica-based Montgomery Summit.
