A Conversation on the Canadian App Economy – Toronto

July 29, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free

The Progressive Policy Institute (PPI), a Washington, D.C.-based think-tank, would like to invite you to a panel discussion on Monday, July 29th, 2019 at 12:00 PM. The discussion will feature industry experts in mobile app development, with a Q&A session with audience members to follow the panel.

PPI will discuss its January 2019 study on the Canadian App Economy at this event, which measured the Canadian App Economy as a source of growth and job creation. Canada has a rapidly growing number of app jobs—workers who design, create, market, and maintenance apps distributed domestically and internationally. PPI’s study highlights Canada’s App Economy, investigating its composition, highlighting potential growth in the coming years, and identifying government policies that could catalyze digital innovation.

Panelists: Michael Mandel, PPI Chief Economist; Viet Vu, Economist, Brookfield Institute; Matthias Oschinski, Director of Innovation Economics, MaRS Discovery District; Deepak Chopra, CEO, Clearbridge Mobile; Mike Stern, Founder, Connected
