TORONTO • November 1-2, 2022

CIX is Canada's largest startup curation program and investment conference.

The CIX Summit annually brings together founders and CEOs of Canada's most innovative early and growth-stage tech companies, global investors, corporates and industry advisors.

The 2022 CIX Summit will feature curated startup presentations, keynotes and panels with industry leading executives, as well as focused networking opportunities designed to foster new connections and provide forums for dialog. CIX’s ultimate goal is powering new deals.

From April to July we invite innovative startups, all stages, to apply to CIX Top 20 Early and CIX Top 10 Growth awards program. During August our esteemed Selection Committee will evaluate all, and the award winners will be announced in early September.

CIX is the 'must attend' event to connect with Canada's most promising startups

CIX By the Numbers










For 15 years, CIX's TOP is Canada's premier awards program that nationally evaluates and selects the most innovative EARLY and GROWTH-stage startups from coast to coast, all tech, all stages, who will present at CIX on November 1-2. This year over 18% more companies applied, a new record, and even better, 38.52% are female led!

The companies that I met through CIX are consistently the highest quality of any source of early stage companies I have engaged from many sources in my 21 years as an investment professional. The on-line break-out rooms for one-on-one 7 minute meetings were very well arranged. All entrepreneurs were on time and on topic. I was pleased to schedule longer, private conversations with a few of them.
