Past Synapse Summit Highlights

Relive all the excitement of the past Synapse Summits

Experts & Experiences

Synapse Summit 2022 is a full day packed with amazing content for you, by you. From innovative leaders, hands-on workshops, to dynamic panel discussions, skills building and trend-spotting!

Check out the full agenda to see world renowned leaders as well as future household names.

Synapse Innovation Awards

Especially in the past 12 months, we’ve been forced to think differently and act accordingly. It’s time to recognize the innovators, the risk takers, the doers and the creators, not for the amount of money they raised, the pace of their growth, or their spectacular success or failure, but for daring to see an opportunity to make something better, and to do it! 

If this is you, we want to know. We want to recognize you. We want to celebrate you.

Top ranking companies in each category will be invited to their respective Innovation Showcase, giving you the chance to present your innovation and your company to Summit 2022  Attendees. The winners of each category, and a Grand Winner across all categories, will be announced at the awards event capping Summit 2022!

(Application closes on Dec 31st, 2021)
