V2R Conference 2013

"If I knew then what I know now..."

Celebrating its 10th year, the 2013 Vision to Reality Conference took place in Toronto on April 18. This year’s conference brought together close to 500 entrepreneurs, co-founders and industry influencers to hear from the country’s most successful entrepreneurs.

We thank this year's sponsors for their support. With their help we held our largest conference to date. Also, thank you to our speakers for sharing their stories and inspiring us with their insights. We leave you with their final words of advice in this video titled “If I knew then what I know now...”, along with an interview with this year's keynote speaker, Stewart Butterfield, co-founder of Flickr and Tiny Speck.

The 11th Vision to Reality Conference will take place in April 2014 in Toronto.
