The SingularityU Canada Summit will inspire Canadian businesses to lead in the transformation and growth of a globally competitive, clean economy through exponential technologies. As a founding member, we are thrilled to help Canadian businesses to better understand and profit from these opportunities.
My experience at SU in Silicon Valley was thought-provoking and inspiring. I spent time with incredibly smart, forward-thinking innovators and business leaders who looked at a world with limitless possibilities fuelled by visionary ideas. Bringing SU to Canada will enable dreamers, innovators and leaders the opportunity to collaborate on bold ideas that will shape the future.
