After the last Ignite Waterloo event, our attendees were so incredibly inspired and motivated that they wanted to find a place to keep talking and share ideas. So for Ignite Waterloo 9, we’ll be hosting an official after party at the Black Hole Bistro right inside the Perimeter Institute for all of the attendees. So please feel free to stick around after the event and chat with your fellow Ignite Waterloo attendees! The after party is scheduled to begin right after the event at 10:30pm.
