About Elevate

Elevate unites innovators in their mission to build a better future.


Founded in 2017, Elevate hosts an annual tech and innovation festival in the heart of Toronto; the Most Innovative Workplaces awards; and a curated Creators Dinner series for industry leaders. The organization was founded on the values that diversity is our strength, we’re stronger when we disrupt together, and it’s our time.


In September 2018, Elevate’s annual festival welcomed more than 10,000 guests, 300 speakers and 150 media to Toronto. Notable guests included US Vice President Al Gore, former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, and Bumble founder and CEO Whitney Wolfe Herd.
