With the rise of Toronto comes greater responsibility

Toronto is one of the top tech cities in the world. Our influence is felt around the globe and for good reason. The city of 6.2 million is the largest in Canada and home to a long list of successful companies that range from artificial intelligence startups to fintech firms.

Our secret asset

 
Although, what sets us apart from our international competitors goes far beyond just our award-winning tech hubs and multi-million dollar trade pacts. Our secret weapon lies in our diversity and generous welfare system. It’s these feature that give founders behind tomorrow’s game-changing companies a chance to pursue their dreams and attract top talent and companies from south of the border.

“Toronto has always been great. It just took political forces outside of our control for others to realize it” @asnobar

Although that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for improvement. We need to learn how to better collaborate and create lasting partnerships with other Canadian tech institutions. Through this, we can ensure our startups benefit from any new innovation taking place within our borders. The beauty of Toronto lies in the fact that we’re not Silicon Valley North or a replacement for San Francisco. We are Toronto and proud of it.
