UPDATE: Tickets are sold out for this event. Thank you to everyone who registered and we look forward to seeing you all.

Canadian entrepreneurs are increasingly applying a global lens to commercialization, while international businesses are looking overseas to import transformative solutions.

Join us at the Global Open Innovation Business Contest in Toronto, where we’ll welcome NTT DATA from Japan for the second year.

NTT DATA – a leading IT services provider in Tokyo – is looking for a business partner to take on some of the key social and economic issues facing the world today. Seven disruptive startups will pitch their businesses at MaRS Discovery District, competing for a chance to earn a place at NTT DATA’s Grand Finale in Tokyo.

Get your ticket to watch them pitch and to learn about companies spanning the latest cutting-edge tech including:
• Artificial intelligence
• Machine learning
• Blockchain technologies
• Wearable tech
• Business analytics
• Global financial solutions

A panel of elite judges will select a winner to be announced on the day. This Toronto startup will then proceed to compete with some of the world’s most innovative companies at the Grand Finale Tokyo event in March 2018.

Hear from inspiring startups on February 6 and network with an audience of entrepreneurs, investors and the tech community. Be among the first to know which founder has impressed the judges.

Food and beverages will be served.

Entrepreneurs, investors and anyone interested in global innovation.
