3:00pm-3:30pm – Panel – Advancing Technology – What comes first?

  • The future of tech is here. From AI to machine learning to autonomous vehicles, technology has vastly improved the way we live, work, and learn. So where do we go from here? This panel will explore foundational technologies: the underappreciated yet exceptionally important pieces of improving technology — the parts you cannot see, but need to power “simple” things like your smartphone, or more “advanced” things like driverless cars.

3:30pm-4:00pm – Founder Stories – Shifting Perspective: Building the Tech Titans of York Region

  • Technology is used to enhance the lives of those it touches, but not often do we consider where the idea behind a globally viable product comes from. This keynote panel highlights the story behind the company, and provides an intimate opportunity with founders and CEOs to learn from their past experience.

4:00pm-4:15pm – Pitch Competition Awards

4:15pm-4:30pm Closing Remarks
