NewCo, a revolutionary concept that creates a platform to learn, connect, and celebrate the world’s most innovative and mission-driven organizations, is coming back to Toronto on September 14, 2017. 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. The application deadline has closed for 2017 but stay tuned for how to apply to host in 2018.
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.

In order to do that, it’s counting on an assist from its consumer-facing product — Little Lotus.
Policymakers from both sides of the aisle are looking into it. But how would it work?
