Description

AGENDA

This exclusive event connects the Canadian and Latin American startup ecosystems. Top investors, public policy officials, and startups will come together for three days of speakers, panels, workshops, and tours.

The first two days of the conference are optional tours of the Waterloo (Wednesday, June 7) and Toronto (Thursday, June 8) startup ecosystems. These tours proved extremely popular in 2015, and we expect them to sell out quickly.

A select group of startups from across Latin America will be invited to pitch at the welcoming reception the evening of June 8th.

The conference will take place from 9-5pm on Friday, June 9th at MaRS
