Toronto: the place to be

Toronto is bustling with innovation and growth. Canada's largest city is hailed as one of North America's fastest-growing tech markets. Startups and established tech companies thrive through the town's exciting ecosystem, abundance of creative ideas, and available talent.

Women in Tech & Diversity

Canada is one of the world's most liberal countries in terms of diversity and inclusivity. This liberal mindset is partly due to entrepreneurs in tech hubs such as Toronto. With 44% of attendees identifying as women, Collision is one of the tech calendar's most diverse and inclusive events. Continue to read about Women in Tech at Collision.

The Netherlands also commits to increasing diversity within the tech sector. That is why RVO encourages women entrepreneurs attend tech shows such as Collision.

We look forward to your registration.

"Collision in Toronto is a stage for innovation, technology, and a diverse and inspiring environment. For me, one of the highlights was making valuable connections during informal conversations over coffee and drinks. In addition, RVO organised various activities outside of Collision that offered a unique insight into the Canadian startup community."
