Resolve TO adds new speakers to impressive list


Startupfest is one step closer to its inaugural event in Toronto, Resolve TO.

The organization unveiled its updated speaker list this week with some nice additions.

Montrealers will be familiar with Andy Nulman of Just for Laughs and Airborne Mobile fame; he also recently founded a new predictive gaming platform, Play the Future.

Other notables include Lily Cortese, the Director of Transactions and Business Analytics at the Johnson & Johnson Innovation Centre, David Chouinard, an engineer at the Facebook Connectivity Lab and Ted Serbinski, the Managing Director of Mobility-Techstars, among many more.

Here’s some of the more notables names headlining the show:

Sean Stanleigh – Managing Editor, Globe Edge Content Studio and Co-Chair Lab351
Ben Yoskovitz – Founding Partner, Highline BETA
Kirk Simpson – Co-Founder & CEO, Wave
Ted Serbinski – Managing Director, Mobility – Techstars
David Chouinard – Engineer, Facebook Connectivity Lab
Ted Graham – Head of Open Innovation, General Motors

Toronto’s first startup event of this scope will take place January 25th-27th and will combine the dynamic energy its Montreal predecessor, Startupfest, is known for, with enterprise/corporate thinking.

“It’s not enough to put them in a room and come and listen to content on a stage,” Telio previously told MTLinTECH. “We’re making sure every corporation at the event has a compelling reason to be working with startups. They need to articulate it, attach an offering to it and tell these startups what they expect.” The goal is for attendees to leave with tangible partnerships.

As previously mentioned, Resolve TO will offer 15 “speed dating” zones and conference areas where startups and corporate innovators can collaborate and compete for prizes awarded to the most innovative startup. In addition, the same $100,000 prize offered at Startupfest in Montreal will be awarded to one startup at the event.

The detailed schedule is now available online, which kicks off with registration and the Wednesday night party on the 25th, followed by two days of content and networking. Keynotes will take up the mornings, while afternoons will be divided between the “The Speed Dating Zone” and various content on both the “Startup Stage” and the “Corporate Innovation Stage”.

Tickets are available here, and prices go up on January 12th, so act fast.
