Capitalize for Kids Investors Conference

Capitalize for Kids began in 2014 as a charitable investors conference that raised funds for the Centre for Brain and Mental Health at SickKids. In just 9 years since its inception, Capitalize for Kids Investors Conference has established itself as Canada’s premier best ideas and capital introduction conference. Conference attendees get an opportunity to network with 400+ senior professionals from the alternative investment community, including capital allocators, fund managers, and service providers. We bring the titans of the financial world under one roof to raise capital for kids’ mental health.

2022 Conference in a Nutshell

We had over 400 attendees, 33 speakers, 128 allocators, 57 sponsors and 320 participating firms this year. In addition to our best ideas sessions and fireside chats; we introduced a global macro panel, venture capital panel and digital asset sessions. Our attendees successfully booked 238 meetings at the conference. Together, we raised over $2 million.

Active Philanthropy

To date, Capitalize for Kids has raised over $13 million to support kids’ mental health! 100% of net proceeds from the conference support our impact work focused on building capacity in kids’ mental health services via consulting capabilities and implementation funding.
