Toronto has had a bustling tech scene over the last decade. Faster networks, world class educational institutions, distributed companies, higher levels of skilled based education and success of local start ups in attracting investor money have allowed Toronto to evolve into a rich tech ecosystem which makes a compelling case for businesses and start ups to make and thrive in Toronto. This tech boom has led to an increased number of software development companies and mobile app development companies that are making Toronto their HQs. Toronto is also home to MaRs, Startup Toronto, Startup North and other incubators that have accelerated start up growth and thus increased the demand for app developers to collaborate with promising entrepreneurs to create next-gen digital products.
