Elevate Toronto: Light Up The Lane
September 15, 2017


On September 12-14, 2017, Elevate Toronto was launched: a new festival to showcase Toronto’s thriving tech ecosystem while promoting Toronto internationally as a world class destination for innovation, startups, talent and investment.  Elevate Toronto featured speakers at conferences, and a King West Social, enabling the Toronto tech community to come together in various venues to connect and celebrate.

As part of King West Social, the Upside Foundation joined together with Wattpad and BrightLane to host a party: Light Up The Lane.

Sponsored by BizAirlines, Empty Cubicle, FlashFood, Hubba, LevelJump, Mediseen, Nudge, and Staffy, the party brought together the city’s most innovative companies and startups to socialize, network, and enjoy one of the most beautiful atmospheres in Toronto.


Guest enjoyed fun lawn and carnival games such as Giant Jenga, Giant Connect 4, Giant Checkers, and Plinko. Popsicles, a popcorn bar, a lemonade stand, and SIPBAR ensured everyone was well fed and watered throughout the night.
