BetaKit’s Guide to Elevate Tech Jam

Elevate Tech Jam

Returning for its third year, Elevate is now simply too big for one event guide. So BetaKit has produced a guide to every event and stage taking place across the seven-day festival. You can find a link to each individual guide on our Guide to Elevate 2019 hub page.

Throughout the festival week, Elevate will touch on the many milestones in building a tech business: from staying ahead of trends, to attracting the best talent, to seeing how innovators are using emerging technology today.

“Ask yourself: do you want to be creators or consumers?”
– Razor Suleman

Before a single speaker takes the stage, however, Elevate truly begins with a jam. Taking place over three days at the Design Exchange, Elevate Tech Jam is an opportunity for top talent to showcase their skills, working collaboratively with a team of four to six people. Over 500 researchers, developers, designers, artists, marketers, and students will work together to solve some of the world’s most pressing problems.

“Ask yourself: do you want to be creators or consumers?” Razor Suleman, Elevate co-founder and CEO, told BetaKit. “We need to take big bets and have moonshots.”

A fun way to connect with the Canadian tech community, Elevate Tech Jam will provide benefits beyond networking. Top recruiters from some of the biggest companies in Canada will be on-site looking for talent that can approach problems in a smart and sustainable way.

Participants will receive a complimentary Elevate festival pass to make further connections and be inspired, as well as the opportunity to win additional prize packages.
