Shopify CEO to Headline AccelerateOTT This Week

AccelerateOTT is back for its third year in a row.

Organizers say they changed up the venue and format this year “to better serve the interests of the Ottawa startup community.”

Located at the Horticulture Building at Lansdowne Park, this year’s event features a keynote from Tobias Lutke, the CEO of Shopify.

Lutke is expected to talk about his company’s rise and the Ottawa startup ecosystem, which The Globe and Mail recently ran a feature on, and makes note of such hometown successes as You.i TV, Klipfolio and Pagecloud.

Tickets start at $30.

Techvibes is hosting a Tech Fest recruiting event in Ottawa in October.
