Yesterday, AccelerateTO—an annual conference of connection for technology entrepreneurs, influencers and investors—took place at downtown Toronto. The conference is one of the largest events in Toronto for entrepreneurs, and is hosted by The C100—a non-profit, member-driven organization that supports Canadian technology entrepreneurship through mentorship, partnership and investment. Every year C100 partners with people in Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, and Alberta to bring the Accelerate Series to these locations. This year, partnering up with Digital Media Zone, AccelerateTO had amazing lineup of speakers: Mike McDerment, CEO of Freshbooks; Gokul Rajaram, product engineering lead at Square; Harley Finkelstein, chief platform officer at Shopify; Aydin Senkut, founder and managing director of Felicis Ventures; Ariel Garten, co-founder and CEO of InteraXon.
