We are BEYOND excited to partner with Elevate, coming to Toronto September 20-26. Even if you don’t consider yourself tech-y, we guarantee this festival holds something for you.
The mission of Elevate is to unite the world’s innovators to solve society’s biggest challenges—from climate change and health care to food security and homelessness. They’re shutting down King St. to create a whole new community where you’ll learn about literally everything from The Future of Food with Isabella Grandic to Prescribing AI to Cure Cancer to The Facts of Hype with Kevin Ma (HypeBeast) and Jeff Staple (Staple Design). The superstar speaker lineup includes Michelle Obama(!), Chris Hadfield, Director X and Martha Stewart, plus dozens of visionaries behind companies like girl boss, Vox Media, Glamour, #MOVETHEDIAL, reddit and many more. This festival will be like nothing you’ve experienced before; from illuminating keynotes to elevator pitch battles to social soirées, you’ll connect with filmmakers, artists, media moguls, financiers, scientists and politicos (including Mayor John Tory). If you thought TIFF was big this year, prepare to have your mind blown: this is the festival that’s going to change EVERYTHING.
