For the workshops, Toronto Stock Exchange and TSX Venture Exchange have partnered with industry leading organizations across Canada such as the Association for Corporate Growth Toronto Chapter, Canadian Advanced Technology Alliance, CVCA - Canada's Venture Capital & Private Equity Association, Sustainable Development Technology Canada and BIOTECanada.
