Shifting Focus

Previously known as the Queen's School of Business Innovation Summit, past events have predominantly focused on entrepreneurship and Canadian innovation within the startup landscape. In our 10th year of hosting the event, we will shift the focus from nurturing new ventures to scaling-up burgeoning businesses and moving from market to mass.

The 2017 Scale-Up Summit will offer keynote addresses, workshops, fireside chats, and a diverse range of panels, providing attendees and speakers with an opportunity to engage in stimulating discussion with fellow business leaders, proven innovators, and business academics. Please join us on October 27th & 28th, and connect with inspiring business leaders who have shifted paradigms through disruptive innovation and successfully scaled their businesses.
