Le Château Frontenac, Quebec City (Canada)
It is an independent, not-for-profit and by-invitation only platform whose mission is foster collaboration on a continued basis among the leaders of the four groups of stakeholders of the Canadian tech innovation ecosystem (corporations impacted by tech innovation, leading universities, investors, policy designers and ecosystem builders) to address the most important opportunities and challenges of this ecosystem by way of structured, continued and result-driven discussions.
It is composed of:
- The TIP Leadership Roundtable, an annual meeting focusing on strategic issues and allowing direct and confidential interaction among the senior decision-makers of the four main groups of stakeholders of the tech innovation ecosystem and international guests when relevant to the specific discussions;
- Customized forums, positioned at the operational level and focussing on tangible ways: (i) to enhance the effectiveness of organizations and initiatives that are the building blocks of tech innovation ecosystems, and (ii) to foster synergies among them. The first such forum is the TIP Ecosystem Building Forum.
TIP is the successor to the Public Policy Forum on Venture Capital and Innovation (“PPF”) that was created in 2007.
