What are the Spotlight Awards? 

The Spotlight Awards were created to celebrate and bring attention to the rising tide of Canadian entrepreneurship in the technology sector. Tech founders, investors, influencers & ecosystem builders come together to honour the milestones of Canadian tech companies and inspire the next generation entrepreneurs.

This year, the Spotlight Awards is being featured in the launch of Elevate Toronto, a new three-day innovation festival that showcases the best of the Canadian innovation ecosystem while celebrating diversity and inclusion. 

Together, we will help create industry-changing businesses and grow Canada's long-term prosperity.
