Uberflip is happy to announce that Startupong, the ultimate ping pong tournament for startups in Toronto, will be returning for its third year to bring together Toronto’s thriving tech startups in the spirit of community, giving back, and some friendly competition.

“We’re proud of what Startupong has become and the impact that it’s had in connecting the tech startup community here in Toronto,” said Yoav Schwartz, Uberflip Co-Founder and CEO. “As our company continues to grow, we recognize that we have a responsibility to our community and we are committed to giving back.”

Since it launched in 2014, Startupong has doubled in size each year, bringing together hundreds of attendees from local startups, including Wattpad, Freshbooks, Checkout51, and Influitive. This year, over 800 are expected to attend.

Startupong will be hosted on Tuesday, March 14, 2017 at SPiN ping pong social club in Toronto, ON.

“At Uberflip our values guide us to “Give Back” to our communities, including our commitment to donate 1% of annual revenue growth to charities,” said Randy Frisch, Uberflip Co-Founder and COO. “Building off of these values, we’re excited to donate all proceeds from admissions to the SickKids Foundation, as we’ve done in the past.”

General admission tickets are $10, including two drinks and appetizers. Individuals have the option to register in the doubles ping pong tournament for $40 per team of 2-4. Teams of 10 can sign up for the VIP ‘Startup Team’ package, which includes 10 guaranteed admission tickets and co-sponsorship opportunities.
