The Greater Toronto Area (aka GTA) is filled with talented people innovating in the
fields of online commerce and digital content. Combine that talent pool with the strong current of enterprise that distinguishes the city and the result is a burgeoning digital-commerce cluster.
The mesh/ITAC Digital Commerce Forum is designed to provide a gathering place for this community of innovators and entrepreneurs, something that we believe passionately in at mesh.
The success of the mesh conference and meshUniversity indicates there is a strong appetite for networking, inspiration and business and professional development in the Web-centric business community.
The mesh/ITAC Digital Business Forum is designed to extend these opportunities throughout the year. The Forum will meet regularly in the Toronto area (with occasional forays into other locales) to share best practices and to keep up to date with emerging ideas and technologies.
Future events include the following:
The Stratford Institute: Digital Cultural Innovation on a $10 Million Scale
Date: May 14, 2009 – 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Location: The Spoke Club, 600 King Street West, 4th Floor, Toronto
In May 2008, the University of Waterloo, the Ontario Ministry of Research and Innovation and Open Text Corporation, along with a number of other stakeholders, announced the creation of the Stratford Institute. The institute will be a major research and commercialization force in at the global forefront in digital media technology, bringing together leading researchers, businesses and entrepreneurs to create, examine and
commercialize opportunities in digital media and create jobs of the future.
Open Text has been a driving force behind this initiative and believes there is an enormous opportunity for Ontario to play a leading role in the development of business, government and cultural applications of digital media. No one is more excited about the innovative potential of this new venture than Open Text Chief Information Officer Eugene Roman.
Eugene will present an overview of the Stratford Institute, how the institute was conceived, and how it will function and engage students, innovators, corporate participants, government, and what its role will be in the community. His presentation will detail how the Stratford Institute can serve as a resource for digital technology companies of all sizes
