The InnovateTO150 Showcase will feature the best entrepreneurial and student-led startup companies from Toronto, the Greater Toronto Area and Canada.

These enterprises and startup companies will then demonstrate how their ideas, services, technologies, and products will shape the next 150 years for Toronto, Ontario and beyond.

Many of the showcased ventures are part of the 24 on-campus incubators and accelerators – components of existing academic entrepreneurship programming. These are the innovative entrepreneurship ecosystems currently serving students.
