The City of Toronto and its surrounding area are home to a wealth of innovative and successful IT firms.
To celebrate those successes, and to attract similar talent, the city is hosting Toronto Technology Week from May 28 to June 1.
Dave Forde, chair of TTW, said the city has long been searching for ways to bring the area’s diverse IT community together. It formed an ICT advisory committee comprised of not-for-profits, schools, government and the private sector, and put together a strategy to help transform Toronto into one of the five most innovative, creative and productive locations for ICT research, education, business and investment by 2011.
Impact Mobile is one such local digital media firm. The company, which was founded in 2002 – a time when there was pretty much nowhere else to go but up, says president Gary Schwartz — provides carriers, global agencies and brands ASP self-service marketing platforms for any aspect of their mobile marketing needs.
