Prosperity Summit 2018

CONVERGENCE OF HEALTHCARE WITH MANUFACTURING

Initiated in 2015, the EDCNS Prosperity Summit engages leading North Simcoe entrepreneurs, thought-provoking speakers and panels facilitated by industry experts.

Year after year, the Prosperity Summit puts together a roster of high-octane speakers. Attracting leaders from every sector — business, government, academia and realtors — who want to learn, network and make meaningful connections.

This year’s theme is the “Convergence of Healthcare with Manufacturing”. Several local manufacturers are innovating in the healthcare space. Bringing significant parties together from both verticals allows us to explore needs and synergies in an effort to build on this innovative base of activity. Their inspiring presentations are available below.
