Opening Keynote: Selling a Vision - Building Big in Canada

Chris Albinson
Chief Executive Officer and President

Communitech's True North Strategy has, at its heart, a seemingless impossible goal: Build up fourteen Canadian tech companies to $1 billion in revenue by 2030. Achieving that goal is more than one person or one tech accelerator can accomplish. It takes a whole country. Communitech CEO Chris Albinson will talk about how he approaches his advocacy for the True North Strategy in a multi stakeholder environment from industry, government, academia and beyond.
