Mission
Our 8th annual event – in Toronto – will be open to the entire Canadian innovation and technology ecosystem. Our vision is to build the Ivey Venture Forum into a world-class event that promotes collaboration, celebrates new ventures, and generates thought-leadership on how Canada can become the world’s leading innovation economy.

Attendees/Speakers
This year’s event will host 400 attendees and 20 high calibre panelists/speakers from across Toronto/Canada’s innovation ecosystem — including startups, scale ups, venture capital investors, corporate partners, government partners, and other key stakeholders. 

Embracing Diversity
Our goal for this event is 51%+ female representation at all levels, from speakers/panelists to attendees. We are also reaching out to ecosystem partners to achieve broader goals of diversity and inclusiveness, and to welcome and encourage people that are under-represented to collaborate with us to increase inclusion.
