What are the tech start-up companies looking for?

The Toronto startup ecosystem is exploding. Exciting, growing and well-funded companies in the Greater Toronto Area are searching for management talent that has already lived and breathed startup success. We are looking for those Canadians abroad – in Silicon Valley, New York City, London or anywhere – that think they have to compromise their career to return to Toronto. They don’t.

What does it cost?

It doesn’t cost anything to apply. Successful applicants only pay $125 to register, which covers all conference costs including meals, thanks to the generosity of our Corporate Partners. Participants are responsible for all travel and accommodation costs. Many participants have told us over the past few years that $125 is a terrific deal. We agree!

Can my spouse participate?

Yes. Partners are welcome to apply and attend as full participants. However, they do not need to apply in order to accompany you to the social and cultural aspects of the event. Note, accompanying partners who are not participants will not be included in the Resume Book or Program Book that are distributed to our sponsors, nor will they be matched with potential employers.

What’s the timeline for applying?

Applications for Toronto Homecoming 2015 are now closed! Applicants will be notified about the success of their application in the summer.
