“I am excited that the Innovation Cluster has invited me to share my innovation story with the entrepreneurial community in Peterborough and the Kawarthas,” Romanow says.

Before becoming the youngest dragon on CBC’s Dragons’ Den in 2015, Romanow co-founded SnapSaves and Buytopia, both deal sites to help save money on purchases. In a matter of two years, Buytopia had obtained over 2.5 million subscribers and over 100 million dollars in savings. In 2015, Women’s Executive Network named Romanow one of the 100 Most Powerful Women in Canada.

With no plans of stopping her entrepreneurial journey anytime soon, Romanow is now investing into other high-potential startups, many of whom enter the hit CBC Television show Dragons’ Den.

“The Innovation Cluster is excited to receive support from the Province, bringing a tech mogul like Michele Romanow to inspire young entrepreneurs of the future,” says Michael Skinner, President & CEO of the Innovation Cluster.

Following her presentation at E-Connect, attendees will have the opportunity to greet Michele Romanow.
