D-Wave Executives Out and About in Canada this Month

Over the next few weeks, the D-Wave team will present at a few exciting Canadian technology events: one right here in Vancouver, and another in Toronto.

On May 13th, our CEO Vern Brownell will speak at the Bloomberg Canada Economic Summit in Toronto, at the Lightbox event space. He’ll participate in a roundtable alongside some of Canada’s top tech leaders: Mark Barrenechea, President and CEO of OpenText, and Michael Roach, President and CEO of CGI. The discussion will focus on the state of the Canadian technology industry, and how Canada can better foster innovation and develop disruptive technology companies. Vern will be sharing details about D-Wave’s work, and discussing the growth of a new class of Canadian companies. You can follow along on Twitter with #BBGCanada.

A few days later, on May 15th, the first annual NextBC Showcase will be happening in Vancouver, at the TELUS World of Science center. D-Wave was selected as one of the top 25 most innovative companies in British Columbia by DigiBC, the Industry Association for Digital Media and Wireless companies in BC. Warren Wall, D-Wave’s Executive Vice President and COO, and Mark Johnson, Senior Scientist and processor team lead, will participate in a technology showcase with a community of peers and technology industry leaders. The showcase will be followed by an awards presentation and a keynote presentation from Bloomberg West’s Paul Kedrosky. If you’d like to attend, you can grab a ticket here!

These are sure to be fascinating events, giving interested observers a sneak peek into D-Wave’s work and the fast growing Canadian tech industry. We hope to see you there.
