We were thrilled to launch the 1st Technology Salon Canada - Toronto edition, with a Salon focusing on How Technology Can Improve International Development.
See the invitation to RSVP.
High atop the Toronto skyline, at the Ontario Investment and Trade Centre (thanks to the Ontario Ministry of Economic Development, Trade and Employment | Ministry of Research and Innovation), the Salon was attended by a lively group of 45 leaders in nonprofits, funders / governments and technology firms - all wanting to learn more and share perspectives about addressing long-standing challenges in the international development sector.
We'll be taking a break for the summer, but back in the late September / early October time frame with another topic, another Salon - stay tuned!
Our perspectives on ICT4D and education, innovation and learning.
