Description

The Mayor’s International Business Programme is inviting B2B and Education Tech businesses to join them for a Trade Mission to Toronto and Chicago. This Mission aims to assist high-growth companies seeking to identify partnerships and to explore business opportunities. To do so, the Mayor's International Business Programme will organise meetings and networking events with key local corporates, leaders and organisations matching the needs and requirements of the MIBP delegates to expand their business activities in this area.

The trade mission will end in Chicago where the ISTE EdTech show is starting on June 24th.

Toronto acounts for more than six million people, one-fifth of Canada’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and 40 percent of Canada’s business headquarters including IBM Canada, Alphabet (Google), HP Canada, Cisco Systems Canada, Microsoft Canada.

Chicago has one of the world’s largest and most diversified economies, with more than four million employees and generating an annual gross regional product (GRP) of over $609 billion. The city is home to more than 400 major corporate headquarters, including 34 in the Fortune 500 (Walgreens Boots Alliance, Boeing, State Farm, Archer Daniels Midland, United Continental, Allstate, Mondelēz International, Exelon).
