I have been with PORCH from the beginning, and now it is part of my life! PORCH shed light on the Canadian market and culture with which l was totally unfamiliar thereinbefore. There is always something new to learn

Amir Piryaei

COO, Robendy

I think there are a lot of communities out there in the world today, but I think that what PORCH has been able to do is appeal to a specific group of people, understanding them deeply and also serving them in a way that I don't think other communities do.

Ravi Rajani

Founder, Ravi Rajani Consulting

I have never thought how powerful online community engagement can be. Thanks to PORCH, I am discovering the power of community every day. It's AMAZING!!! You are amazing!

Anatoly Dobrovinsky

Founder, Supernova Technology

I came to Canada as a student in 1999 and only became an entrepreneur years later after corporate jobs. I wish that there was a community like PORCH back then. It would have made the whole journey less lonely.

Marcelo Andrade

Managing Director, Lucalex Holdings

We are truly happy to be a part of PORCH and to have you and all our PORCH friends beside us, not just as friends, but as professional experts who we've always had their support and help. I can't really imagine how this journey would be without PORCH! THANK YOU, PORCH.

The significance of this community cannot be emphasized enough. Through PORCH, immigrant entrepreneurs have discovered a platform to connect, collaborate, and learn from one another. The collective knowledge, experiences, and support exchanged within this community have undeniably played a pivotal role in their achievements.

Melissa Godmer

Founder, GIC

For me, the most important aspect of PORCH is that it makes me feel like I'm not alone. There are many like-minded people who have come to this country to benefit from the opportunities offered by this fantastic startup ecosystem, all sharing the goal of building something significant—a successful business that can drive positive change.
