Virtually Caffeinated Innovators

August 14th Topic – Building a community-first business

This Virtually Caffeinated Innovators session will be led by SVZ member Matt Zerker, Founder of Tethr, a peer-to-peer support platform for men, seeking to break the stigma about men’s mental health.

Matt will lead this Virtually Caffeinated Innovators session on building community-first businesses. We know that startups rely on community support, especially during their early stages. So what makes a business truly community-first? How can entrepreneurs embrace that as they scale their business and reach more customers? How has COVID-19 impacted the way we engage with the communities we serve? Join us for this exciting conversation with Matt Zerker to share your perspectives and learn from new ones, and meet people from the SVZ community.

Due to campus-wide event cancellations at Ryerson university and an increase in social distancing efforts around the city, the SVZ is cancelling all in-person #CaffeinatedInnovators meetings until further notice. However, we pride ourselves on our wonderful community, and despite these uncertain times, we are still committed to hosting our weekly conversations and coming together.

Join us and the SVZ team, entrepreneurs, and community members for a weekly conversation on entrepreneurship and social impact. Brew yourself your favourite warm beverage, grab a snack and start your Friday right with an impactful conversation right from the comfort of your own home!

Note: The Zoom link will be sent to your email inbox after you sign up! It will be in the bottom of the confirmation email. Please also note you don’t need to sign up to each session, we use the same Zoom link every week.

Please note Caffeinated Innovators sessions will be recorded for the SVZ’s internal and promotional use.
