SWITCH at Collision Conference 2022

We had a fantastic time hosting fantastic founders, investors and ecosystem leaders who were in attendance at this year’s Collision Conference in Toronto. It was our first event post-COVID (we’re back!), and we couldn’t be happier about seeing everyone’s smiling, energetic and powerful faces IRL.

SWITCH’s Clubhouse was co-hosted by Kate Brodock, CEO of SWITCH and GP of The W Fund, and Zoey McKenzie, Investor and Advisor, and sponsored by Notion, Thompson Hine, and the W Fund, and produced by wolari.studio.
