It’s easy to get caught in the whirlwind of conferences – preparing, talking, presenting, networking and poof! They’re tearing it down and you’re left with a swag bag, T-shirt, and spinning head. Enter Elias Puurunen, Founder of Tractus Event Passport.

To combine his love of conferences, public speaking, and free hotel coffee, he created Tractus Event Passport, the conference experience app designed by speakers, event organizers, and networkers. It’s powered conferences and symposiums across Canada.

“The biggest takeaway today is that you as a startup can compete with the big fish in any market that you decide to enter so long as you’re creative about what you do and how.”

In this week’s episode of the #StartupCanadaPodcast, Rivers Corbett sits down with Elias to help entrepreneurs how to get the most out of conferences they organize, and the value of knowing how to sell your business as much as yourself.
