August 9-10, 2022
The Frontier Summit is a curated two-day event bringing together thought leaders, founders and investors. This intimate event includes meaningful discussions on frontier technology, how we are shaping the future of the Metaverse and Web3 to make an impact on our lives, and how we will unlock a new innovation economy. Our host city, Vancouver, BC, is rapidly becoming a globally-leading Metaverse, Web3 hub and frontier technology innovation ecosystem.
Against the backdrop of beautiful British Columbia, the Frontier Summit isn’t your normal tech event: it’s about purpose, connection and creating an experience that we hope will leave you in awe. The bifactor of this will lead to innovation opportunities, investments, whitepapers, and inspiration.
Frontier technologies are thriving in this region. Vancouver has the second largest VR/AR/Metaverse industry globally, second largest AI industry nationally, second largest cleantech industry nationally, and a world-leading cluster of film, television, gaming, VFX and animation firms including Disney, Microsoft, Electronic Arts (EA), Sony Pictures, and Imageworks.
We are home to pioneers in robotics, quantum computing, and biotech with the global antibody leader Abcellera, and in blockchain technologies with the homegrown unicorn Layerzero. We are producing exponentially more frontier tech ‘unicorns’ (companies with billion dollar valuations) every year.
We have become an ecosystem of builders and innovators. And we’re at a once-in-a-generation opportunity to recognize the presence of these future-shaping technologies, drive their growth, and propel them along with Vancouver to the global stage.
Join thought leaders, founders and investors for meaningful discussions on frontier technology, shaping the future of the Metaverse and Web3, and how we will unlock a new innovation economy.
Dinner & Reception on the Water
We’ll kick off Frontier Summit’s first evening with a private Welcome Reception. Mix and mingle with fellow leaders, local founders and influencers as we cruise along the picturesque West Coast.
A visit up the Sea to Sky Gondola provides a stunning backdrop for networking and building connections. We’ll mix in mountaintop hiking with insightful discussions and delicious food to give you the full BC experience.
West Coast Dinner & Closing Party
After our second day, we’ll meet with locals and guests on the rooftop of a secret location for a unique dinner featuring the best of local Pacific Northwest cuisine and cocktails.
Throughout our time together, you’ll get a sense of the true flavor of the Pacific Northwest. We’ll feature stories from unique local businesses as well as curated menus from top BC chefs.
