Event Screening (Oct 8, 2013): Crowdfunding film DAY JOB DOC Toronto Premiere
Day Job Doc is a film that follows the gruelling process of three start-up companies in Toronto’s Extreme Startups Accelerator. The film explores the real life stories of these entrepreneurs as they build their idea into a startup company – each facing their own set of unique challenges over the intense 12-week program.
In the heart of Toronto where many start-ups are born, Jeremy Potvin, (CEO of Shifthub), Jayesh Parmar (CEO of Picatic), and Nima Garidideh (CTO of Venio) reveal their stories of hardships, sacrifice, and perseverance as they realize that chasing their dream requires a 24/7 commitment. Located in the heart of Downtown Toronto, we are excited to host the TORONTO PREMIERE screening of Day Job Doc at the TIFF Bell Light Box.
Join us for a fun-filled evening of entertainment and popcorn, with the city’s most talented and aspiring individuals who are passionate about chasing their dreams. Do you have what it takes to make this 24/7 commitment to building an idea?

Behind every great product or service are individuals with big aspirations and the courage to see them through. We’ve created this film to share their inspiring stories and reveal the [unglamorous] truth – hardships, sacrifice, and perseverance – behind this demanding journey. We are optimistic that in our fast-paced, attention starved world, where we have become obsessed with ‘the end result’, that we have not forgotten the most important part of creation: the process itself. Our hope is that we inspire people to chase their own dreams, no matter how difficult or daunting the journey seems.
