What Is Pitch Your Tech!?
Pitch Your Tech! is a conference designed to introduce diverse youth with an interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) to 19 of Canada's foremost leaders in tech. Teens will interact with founders and innovators in artificial intelligence, animation, virtual reality, game design, app development, financial literacy, and more. And get advice on how to follow their tech dreams - from people who look just like them.
Each student will pick workshops lead by top execs that will help them navigate their career in tech.
Teens can meet, and engage with, leaders looking to mentor and hire young, tech superstars.
Teens will connect with their peers, present their big idea, and win scholarships and prizes.
Why Is An Event Like This Needed?
There are a lack of available options for GTHA youth who are pursuing job opportunities in tech. Considering the size of this metropolitan city, this should not be happening. No platform currently exists that addresses the unique needs of underrepresented youth in need of career advice, mentorship or educational assistance. .
Until now. We are committed to creating the change we need to see.
