Building the Next Generation of Tech Leaders

There are thousands of technology firms in Canada.  Does Canada have a suitable infrastructure in place to foster their growth?  Absolutely not, according to the most recent report from the Science, Technology and Innovation Council (STIC).  What will it take to provide the impetus to create the next major global ICT firm headquartered in Canada?  How can this be accomplished?

ITAC believes that the best people to answer the question are the innovators and executives leading Canada’s high growth firms today.  So for our next Board of Governors Dinner we have assembled a group of Founder/CEOs of some of our most dynamic technology firms to discuss what’s working and what isn’t working in Canada’s innovation ecosystem and to explore what Canada needs to do to help build the next technology powerhouse.  As a new Federal Government begins to set out it economic, science and innovation policies, the answers to these questions will become increasingly important.

Please join us for what promises to be a lively conversation.  The discussion will be moderated by Jeffrey Crelinsten.  Jeff is the CEO of The Impact Group and a respected observer and analyst of Canada’s R&D performance and the evolution of its innovation policy framework.  The CEO’s joining him are:

  • Jeremy Auger, Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer, D2L Corp, a global company helping transform the way the world learns through innovative technology solutions;
  • Frédéric Boulanger, Founder, President and CEO of Macadamian Technologies, a respected and innovative software UX design and development firm;
  • Dan Latendre, Founder, CEO of Igloo Software, a dynamic Waterloo based company revolutionizing enterprise social platforms;
  • Carl Rodrigues, Founder, President and CEO of SOTI, a leader in enterprise mobility management;

Because of the subject matter of this Special Board of Governors Dinner, this will be a joint session replacing the two separate events held for the ITAC Ontario Annual Reception and the national Board of Governor’s dinner.  Members of both communities are encouraged to attend.
