With a special performance by Sax Appeal!

#eSAX (The Entrepreneur Social Advantage Experience) is an entrepreneur networking community and tradeshow for small business to create connections, gain knowledge and promote regional economic collaboration with the Ottawa Board of Trade. Events are held every 3 months (January, April, July and October). Never been to #eSAX? Check out this short video!


A pitchfest is where entrepreneurs present in front of a panel (e.g., Dragons’ Den) to potentially win resources that will aid their business.

Eligibility - Applicants must:

  • Have been in business less than five (5) years;

  • Have generated less than $500,000 in revenue since inception;

  • Be headquartered within 100 km of the National Capital Region.

Prize packages worth thousands of dollars will be awarded to the top three (3) applicants as judged by popular vote @eSAX (i.e., 1st prize, 2nd prize and 3rd prize). NOTE that there will be a maximum of 10 companies pitching.

Please contact eSAX for additional information or questions.




Shoot I missed the deadline to register on-line. Can I still attend?

  • YES! Tickets will be available at the door. Due to the size of eSAX, we send the names of all pre-registered attendees to print ahead of time so everyone will have a customized lanyard. We would be pleased to print you a name tag on our fancy label maker at the event if you did not have a chance to register ahead of time.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

  • Your eSAX ticket printout entitles you to take OC Transpo for FREE to, and from the event! (Please show the bus driver your ticket).
  • You can purchase an underground parking pass during the eSAX registration process to make your networking experience worry-free!
  • The Glebe has plenty of on-street meter parking throughout the neighborhood (but please make sure to pay attention to all City of Ottawa parking signs).

What is the run-down of eSAX?

  • Feel free to view this cool #MannequinChallenge video to get an idea on the overall layout of eSAX. (Pretty neat eh?)
  • The first three hours or so are open networking, where people can visit the booths, mix, mingle and interact in a pleasant atmosphere. (fyi, we highly recommend our signature cocktail 'Sax on the Beach')!!

What should I wear?

  • Business casual.

  • eSAX is a professional entrepreneur networking event, but with a more social aspect. (In fact, the letter 'S' in eSAX actually stands for the word 'social'! You may wish to also consider branding yourself for maximum exposure.

  • Yellow and black colors are encouraged, but fedoras would be awesome!!


  • Will not be available.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

– Feel free to contact Jarrod Goldsmith with any questions. Tel: 613-834-6641

Thank you for joining us @eSAX. HAPPY NETWORKING!
