This is what you can expect when you attend my Babies, Business + Breakfast pop-up events, which I’ve been hosting at business startup and accelerator spaces around the City of Ottawa.

We provide toys and a play area but you’re asked to bring your own diapers and wipes as required! Events are always held at venues with baby change facilities on site in a gender neutral washroom.


Dress code is baby casual, come as you are and bring your baby carriers or strollers if needed. The buildings I use have accessible doors, a sidewalk (in winter there may be snow but it is usually cleared by the city) and elevator!


Detailed room directions, public transit and parking instructions are provided on the event listing and in attendee emails distributed in advance. We also provide wayfinding signage around the venue on the day. If you get lost, you can always ask a venue staff member and/or reception to assist you. 


Don’t worry about printing the tickets! We know you’ll have your hands full already so confirm your name(s) at the door and fill out our event photography form when you arrive. All parents and/or guardians must remain on site at the event venue with their children at all times as we are not providing on-site childcare services.


Continental breakfast food and refreshments will be provided. If you or your child is partial to certain snacks, please bring what you need and note there are usually cafés on site or within walking distance. We will provide toys and a play area but please bring your own diapers and wipes as required!


Mix, mingle, share stories, ask questions, play with your kids, make new friends and have fun! This is all about bringing like-minded people (who also happen to be parents) together in an inclusive environment to discuss building businesses and real-life parenthood…IRL. No pressure, tech savvy or unicorn startup ambitions required. Just honest to goodness conversation, creativity, community (and coffee).


If you have specific things you want the speakers to address, let me know or simply bring your questions with you to ask on the day! 

If I’ve missed anything, please comment on this post or contact me via the online form on my website here.

Sending you a virtual cup of coffee + parenting solidarity.

Hope to see you soon!
