What time does everything start?

The plan is to begin at 9:30 am, but be there for 9 am for orientation, instructions and meet + greet w/ your fellow Next Levelers.

What time will it end? 

Probably around 5 p.m., followed by a reception, a.k.a, party. But, anything can happen. So plan to hang around.

What is the format?

Part TED Talks, Part DAVOS, Part Munk Debates, Part Andy Warhol Dinner Party.

All interactive. It is a genius-jam. A master-class of meaning. A dialogue of disruptors. A round table of risk-takers...you get the idea.

Guest Speakers

We have worked hard to program and cultivate an amazing line up of great minds with great stories to tell, and something to teach us. But, we can't control the universe. Although we try.

So, the speaker list is subject to change, even at the last minute. BUT, you really should not attend for just one person. It is about the total experience, the new connections, the exchange of new ideas, and the challenge to the non-existent limits of the possible. 

How many people will be there?

SEATING IS SUPER LIMTED and EXCLUSIVE. But just enough people to make it interesting. 

Where is the location / venue?

It is a secret, but it will be somewhere cool in Oshawa.

Will it be FUN?


Is there a cost to attend?

No. thanks to our many super awesome sponsors and supporters, attendance is FREE. But you must be invited.

Is FOOD included?

No. As there is no cost to attend, we do not provide food. BUT, we encourage you to support the local restaurants during lunch - it has been a hard couple of years for them. And we may have coupons.

What is the ZOOM ROOM?

A few of our speakers will Zoom in from L.A, NYC, maybe even Mars, depending on travel situations. These special intimate and interactive sessions will be hosted by Durham Radio's Chris Koppin.

Dress Code:

Business Casual / Comfortable Shoes.

Why are we doing this?

Why Not? The objective is to connect people, inspire new business ventures, and create some energy around innovative thinking, problem-solving and creative economic synergies among next-gen entrepreneurs.
