Global AI: How to Build Across Borders

In partnership with

Canada has tremendous strengths in AI research and is home to a new wave of promising startups. The next step in our AI evolution is to build companies that operate globally, which carries major promise for growth and competitiveness. 

That’s why the March 4 edition of CrossOver: AI series will look at key lessons from AI companies building operational, technology and investment partnerships across international borders. 

We’ll review how partnerships between startups and multinational companies are helping to develop new technologies and bring them to market, case studies in how this is being achieved, investment opportunities in Canada and how firms can tackle - and win - in global markets. 

A major goal of this event is facilitating networking among participants: AInBC and CityAge will set up 1:1 meetings among the firms wishing to connect.
