Host a 2017 Session

Are you a NewCo?

NewCo, a revolutionary concept that creates a platform to learn, connect, and celebrate the world’s most innovative and mission-driven organizations, is holding its first Canadian NewCo Festival on September 15, 2016 in Toronto. NewCo represents a radical departure from the traditional conference format. Rather than learning in a conventional setting, festival attendees visit companies of their choice throughout the city. They learn about the companies first-hand from leaders and CEOs, right inside the offices. Applications are closed for 2016 but you can apply to host next year.

    NewCo Spotlight: Embrace has Helped 200K Babies Stay Warm – and Stay Alive

    Preterm and underweight babies who survive their first month can still suffer severe long-term health problems — diabetes, heart disease, developmental delay. Keeping them warm can help prevent those problems. Jane Chen, Embrace Innovations’ CEO and co-founder, tells NewCo that over the next few years the company wants to go from helping 200,000 babies across 14 countries in the developing world to helping a million. In order to do that, it’s counting on an assist from its consumer-facing product — Little Lotus.

“NewCo is more than the sum of its parts; it's an event and experience that you start to really appreciate a few months after all is said and done when the new connections you've made with prospective users, fellow entrepreneurs and like minded people start manifesting themselves into new partnerships.”
