Techweek takes over Toronto

Techweek takes over Toronto 

“We couldn’t ask for a better city to add to our roster this year,” said Amanda Signorelli, CEO of Techweek. “Toronto is the third largest tech hub in North America and the tech ecosystem is growing quickly across numerous sectors, such as sustainable tech, fintech and healthcare tech.”

An Executive Advisory Board composed of ten Torontonian industry leaders has planned the event. Together with the Techweek team, they have created interactive workshops, a hackathan, startup pitch competition, networking events and educational speaker panels.

And that’s just for this week. Over the next five years, Techweek pledges to focus on new and established local businesses and bring in stakeholders from neighbouring communities.

“With investment levels on the rise, as well, Toronto seemed like an important place for us to be,” said Signorelli. “With the help from our Executive Advisory Board, plus the participation of numerous Toronto-based startups and locally-developed industry leaders, we believe we can host a great event that will be beneficial to the growing Toronto tech community.”​

Toronto will be the sole Canadian city to host techweek this year. Other locations for 2016 include New York, Chicago, Detroit, Kansas City, Miami, Dallas and Los Angeles.
