Portuguese Delegation travels to Toronto with 13 startups to attend Collision

Canada is more than just the second biggest North American economy. It is home to unicorns like Shopify and Hootsuite and world-class innovation hubs like MaRs Innovation or One Eleven. With the current policies on visas and immigration in the USA, more tech talent and startups are relocating to the country.

Collision is the North American edition of these global summits, attracting attendees from 120 countries. 100+ global business delegations are expected to attend the conference.

Portugal will be represented at Collision with a delegation supported by Startup Portugal and the City of Lisbon from the 26th to the 29th of Jun 2023. Some of these startups will have exhibition spaces in the startup islands. If your startup is not part of the Collision startup program or during the days when you are not exhibiting, we encourage you to utilize the Lisboa & Portugal Lounge as a meeting point and a venue for hosting your meetings.
