About the Speaker

Alex Tveit has nearly two decades of experience from the private equity sector in Canada. During the same time, he mentored and ran a growth accelerator focusing on scale-up with several national partners such as Futurpreneur, BDC, Dentons, and Spin Master, for close to 6 years. Recognizing the role that innovation and entrepreneurship needs to play in meeting the world’s environmental and societal challenges, he is now focused on working with cities and communities around building ecosystems for innovation in Canada and globally, through the nonprofit Sustainable Impact Foundation.

Together with MaRS Discovery District, Mila, 40+ Academic Institutions, and many Canadian and international partners, he runs Tech and AI Stewardship.
