CIX is a ‘must attend’ technology innovation destination where investors, innovative companies, entrepreneurs and facilitators converge to drive economic growth and accelerate the development and implementation of new ideas.
CIX was launched in 2008 by Canadian investors who wanted one destination which curates and showcases the best emerging tech companies from across Canada. Today, CIX is Canada’s largest gathering of tech entrepreneurs and capital providers with a mandate to foster business collaborations through both structured and informal networking opportunities, and to provide inspiring and informative high-level keynotes and panel discussions to explore opportunities and spark discussion and collaboration.
