The inaugural Canadian Innovation Exchange (CIX) is on the calender for April 29 & 30th at the Carlu in Toronto and promises to focus on innovation. The two-day event will feature an innovation marketplace, flash-forward presentations on the state of technology, and facilitated networking opportunities. Key participants from the US and across Canada have been invited and confirmed attendees include: Mark Skapinker of Brightspark, Barry Gekiere of Ventures West, Bryan Kerdman of EdgeStone Capital Partners, Steve Hnatiuk of Yaletown Venture Partners, and Rick Segal of JLA Ventures.
CIX is intended to fill a void in the marketplace for an efficient and cost-effective meeting place leading to the development of innovative companies. The Toronto event will serve as a showcase of Canada’s top start-up companies. If you’re interested in innovation, a founder of a fast growing start-up, or a member of the entrepreneurial ecosystem (banks, lawyers and VCs) you should attend. If your company is interested in presenting at the CIX, you have until March 24th to submit your registration.
