The Future of Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality
with Christopher Olimpo
Creative Director, 5th Wall Agency
Christopher will talk about his journey from being a Dawson College student and Eweek volunteer, to spending time with a mentor and working with startups. He will present all the lessons he has learned along the way and what he believes the future of VR and AR will look like based on his experience in this very new technological happening.
About Christopher Olimpo
Chris Olimpo is a graduate of the Illustration and Design program. His stint as an Eweek volunteer three years ago changed the course of his career. Eweek brought Chris and Armando Gomez, the VP of advertising at Askmen.com together. Armando’s mentorship led Chris into the world of startups that landed him many opportunities to grow his career. His first immersion in the world of startups was as Art Director with Flatbook where he was part of a team of four. The company grew to 102 employees in just 6 months and reached 35 cities worldwide. Moving on to a career in advertising, he’s pitched and closed contracts with Universal Studios and is currently working on three major VR projects for two huge franchise films. He works closely with the Biz Dev and Production teams to develop pitches and bring them from ideas to final products, the road of every entrepreneur.
He is currently building the creative team at the 5th Wall Agency – they produce ad campaigns in Virtual Reality (VR), 360 Video and Augmented Reality (AR)

Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is an international movement to inspire millions of young people to embrace innovation, imagination and creativity through entrepreneurship. It is estimated over 15 million youngsters participated worldwide in tens of thousands of events and competition for Global Entrepreneurship Week. In Montreal, Dawson College's EWeek will provide a diverse and strong line-up of speakers, networking events, contests and activities for Montrealers and Dawson College students alike.
Many young students will have their first glimpse of a possible alternative career path and connect with seasoned entrepreneurs. All Montrealers are invited and all events are free. Hear inspiring stories of successful entertainers, photographers, illustrators, designers, dancers, programmers and farmers who launched their own businesses.
Dawson College is ideally placed to be a gathering place of high-profile community events. Situated in the heart of Montréal’s downtown core, at the Atwater metro station, Dawson is Québec’s largest CEGEP with roughly 8,250 full-time day students, 2,400 continuing education students, 600 faculty and a 200+ team of support staff.
