“startupheretoronto.com” is a New Website & Startup Finance Events 2016 in Canada at No Cost

The following video presents Toronto Tech Startup:

“Toronto’s vibrant technology startup community. Those familiar with the community will tell you that it boasts some of the brightest minds in the business — entrepreneurs, mentors and financiers. In many respects, it can be compared to the emerging tech communities in New York City or Tel Aviv. The difference, however, is that Toronto lacks both local public awareness and a unifying voice and identity for its indigenous startup community.
This film gives you a general insight and the feel for what’s taking place in the Toronto tech culture. You Will hear several perspectives and see the role of some of the key players driving the growth of e-commence in Toronto and across Canada.”

Mayor Tory to champion Toronto region as global centre of innovation

Toronto Mayor John Tory today launched a new city website and plan to champion the region as a centre of startups, innovation and growth, in partnership with City of Kitchener Mayor Berry Vrbanovic.

The two mayors will participate in a dual city mission to San Francisco and Silicon Valley in April, where they will communicate the region’s strengths, encourage investment and promote the Toronto-Waterloo regional corridor as an important home to talent and innovation.

“Toronto and the Waterloo Region are no farther apart than San Francisco and Silicon Valley, and are home to a diverse, highly educated population and game changing ideas,” said Mayor Tory. “We need to build our reputation as a place where great talent is nurtured, industries can grow and where we engage the public in finding innovative solutions.”

Mayor Tory will also travel to Kitchener-Waterloo on March 23 as part of his work with Mayor Vrbanovic to promote increased collaboration and improved connections between the regions.

“Thousands of finance and tech workers travel between Toronto and the Waterloo Region every day,” said Mayor Vrbanovic. “Developing the corridor that connects us will move people more efficiently, promoting greater collaboration and economic development and enabling us to compete on an international scale with the world’s largest innovation centres.”

To support the growing startup community along the broader Toronto-Waterloo innovation corridor, the City launched a website at startupheretoronto.com. The StartUp HERE Toronto website was built and will be managed in partnership with Toronto startups, incubators, accelerators, funders and educational institutions.

Mayor Tory launched the new site following a working group with private and public sector leaders and city staff on Thursday focused on four key items that will inform the city’s innovation agenda: talent attraction and retention; civic engagement, developing Toronto’s reputation as a digital testing ground, and creating an innovation friendly regulatory and procurement environment.

These initiatives are part of “From Concept to Commercialization: A Startup Eco-system Strategy for the City of Toronto,” which was endorsed by City Council in May 2015.

Today’s event was hosted by Shopify. You can find out more about this innovative Canadian technology company at press.shopify.com.
