About this event

Andrew Peek is a serial entrepreneur and angel investor. He speaks on the impact of exponential change brought on by technology, the future of work, and how designing for curiosity activates an entrepreneurial mindset. For over a decade, Andrew has been making bets on technology backed by experimentation, data, and the changing patterns in human behaviour. He’s held pivotal roles in the founding and scaling of several of Canada’s most notable startups, including FreshBooks (Director), Shopify (Director), Jet Cooper (Partner), Next to North (Founder), and Camp Reset (Founder). Andrew is consistently relied upon to chart paths through uncertainty and make bold predictions about where technology will lead us. His ability to draw connections between disparate ideas and trends comes from standing at the intersection of many different communities at any given time. Prior to speaking at TEDxToronto 2015, Andrew was responsible for designing the event’s Speakers Coaching Program, which is now in use across a number of TEDx events worldwide. He currently resides in Toronto, Canada and is working on a series of technology-driven experiments. His first book, ‘Moving Targets’ is scheduled for release in late 2016.   Two Doorprizes!
