Frontier Collective has created a flagship summit aimed at connecting global investors, leaders, and stakeholders with metaverse and Web3 leaders in Vancouver.
The local nonprofit announced today that the inaugural Frontier Summit will take place in mid-August.
“Frontier technologies are thriving in this region and we see a tremendous opportunity to cement Vancouver’s position both nationally and globally,” stated Dan Burgar, co-founder and CEO of the Frontier Collective.
Frontier Collective describes itself as “non-traditional” and comprised of “leaders in tech, culture, and community who support the development of the fastest-growing technologies in the region.” The organization’s new flagship event is a curated, two-day event dissecting what that future should look like and “how it will integrate with the world and other frontier technologies booming in BC.”
“With a recession looming, we want to host the Frontier Summit and advocate for Vancouver’s enormous potential for global players, driving investment and attention,” Burgar noted.
Dozens of leaders and investors from around the world will descend on Vancouver to connect with local founders and startups innovating the metaverse and web3, as well as those disrupting virtual and augmented reality, artificial intelligence, and creative spaces like non-fungible tokens and e-sports.
“We also want to uncover how the metaverse and Web3 will revolutionize every industry and benefit each and every one of us, as we hit the next wave of computing and the internet,” added Burgar.
Leaders attending include Marco DeMiroz, The Venture Reality Fund; Yoshiaki Tanaka, Senior Director, Softbank; Asako Vitous, Director, Mitsubishi Corporation; and Kimberlee Archer, Global Head of AR, Snap. Among the local attendees are Dapper Labs, LayerZero Labs, West Coast NFT, Ethos Lab, and Precision OS.
The goal of the Frontier Summit is to “spark connections and collaborations between global investors and major stakeholders who are moving Vancouver’s culture of innovation forward,” according to a statement from the Collective.
