Collision 2019 – Toronto Inaugural Event – Comments and Pics

This past week I had the opportunity to check out the Inaugural Event of Collision in 2019. It’s always a risk when you first start a conference in a location, even for one that had as much excitement and anticipation as Collision. To say that this event delivered would be an understatement, they knocked it out of the park, in my opinion.

A few highlights of the event:

  • Opening night and seeing Justin Trudeau and Seth Rogan live
  • My team doing its first public presentation of Ampli on the RBC stage. If you are interested, signup for our Waitlist.
  • “We don’t date assets, we marry them” my favourite quote by Satish Rai from Omers
  • $20 for 2 pieces of pizza 😮
  • Lots of meetings, I mean lots of meeting with some many great start-ups

Here are some of my photos from the event.

Joining RBC Ventures

I have decided to join RBC Ventures on a contract basis to help them launch Ampli. You can read about what the media has to say about this program below.

My journey to RBC Ventures stated at the end of 2017 while having some discussions with Derek Szeto and why he joined Ventures. In February of this year I had the opportunity to speak with Gabriel Woo and then spend a day with the Ventures executive team in Toronto including a fruitful discussion with Mike Dobbins.

I was impressed with what RBC is attempting to do with Ventures, why it was created and why they believe they can win.

I look forward to helping RBC Ventures in the coming months.
