Elevate Toronto was an opportunity to promote Toronto’s large and growing innovation and technology sector which is creating many jobs across our City.  As the City’s Advocate for the Innovation Economy Portfolio I was very involved in Elevate Toronto including speaking, presentations on innovation and technology issues and panel discussions.  I, along with many City officials and staff, have been working hard on the innovation economy file as it adding so much to our City’s prosperity and profile across the world.  Be sure to check out my interview with Stephan Palios, a Toronto-based entrepreneur, advocate, and blogger,  to read about why I  have been a champion of innovation and connecting big thinkers to infrastructural government support.
