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. 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. Apply to host in 2020(Date TBC).

SickKids Foundation Drive

NewCo Toronto asks for your support of SickKids

SickKids is challenging Canada’s tech and innovation community to be as invested in SickKids’ future as they are in their companies. Their goal: $25 million for new, state-of-the-art spaces, people, and programs. As drivers of change, you are redefining how we live: how we invest, how we connect with friends and family, how we think and act. Join the fight today and support them through sharing on social, donating or hosting an event. 


NewCo is a movement; join us.

Learn how to reach 2,000+ host companies, tens of thousands of festival attendees, hundreds of thousands of engaged readers, and a select group of affiliate and corporate partners that underpin the NewCo ecosystem. Join us on our mission to change the way business gets done.

    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.
