Elevate Toronto Launch Party


We cap off the first day of the festival by hosting a networking event for all attendees.


WED, SEPT 13

Our events are centered around showcasing Toronto’s areas of strength within the tech industry. Scattered throughout the city, there will be exhibitions on emerging technologies such as AI, FinTech and Blockchain.



Elevate Toronto is partnering with some of the city’s biggest tech companies to – quite literally – open doors for Elevate attendees to a series of venues open only to conference goers.


THURS, SEPT 14

NewCo represents a radical departure from the traditional conference. Festival attendees visit companies of their choice throughout the city and learn about the companies first-hand from leaders and CEOs, right inside the offices.


Tech founders, investors and influencers come together to honour the milestones of Canadian tech companies. Our 12 winners in 2017 have created over 6 billion dollars of value.
