Start-Up Index Leaders Heading to Banff

nextMEDIA – The Future of Digital Content is just around the corner (June 6-8th) and the speaker line-up is shaping up. Four of Canada’s digital media innovators are scheduled to talk about what it takes to launch and grow a successful company during a Sunday session.

Hear from the country’s hottest digital media innovators, and learn what it takes to achieve success. What made our speakers Canada’s hottest innovators? What are the key factors required to make it happen? How did they get the financing and support to get to where they are today? Can you build a global success story from Canada? What are their predications for the technology and digital media industries and where are their more unfulfilled opportunities? What should we all look out for into 2009?

Session speakers include Jeremy Wright of Toronto’s b5media; Leila Boujanane of Toronto’s Idée Inc.; Boris Wertz of Edmonton’s; and Markus Frind of Vancouver’s own Our Start-Up Indexes confirm that nextMEDIA has indeed got the hottest digital media players on the panel – b5media is currently #1 for Toronto, Nexopia is #1 for Alberta, and was #1 for Vancouver until somebody suggested we check their ID. Idée Inc. has been added to May’s Toronto Start-Up Index which will be published later today.

The session will be moderated by Ellie Rubin of Ellie Corporation. nextMEDIA takes place at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel in Banff, Alberta prior to the Banff World Television Festival.
