Disruption Magazine Canada moves to Silicon Valley, USA

Apr 26, 2021

APRIL 26, 2021: Alberta, Canada – CompuVision Systems Inc. is proud to announce an agreement has been reached with Connection Silicon Valley (CSV) and Canadian Women’s Network (CWN), which will see the two groups take over Disruption Magazine Canada as the magazine’s new publishers. 

“This is a very exciting development,” said Ryan Vestby, CEO of CompuVision. “We created this magazine as a platform to share Canadian technology stories that would otherwise go untold. We see so much potential in disruptive technology and wanted to be a thought-leader in the space to not only know what was happening as a business, but also to further the technology journey of our clients as an IT service provider across North America.”

Disruption Magazine is a quarterly publication that started in 2018. At the time of launch, Disruption Magazine was disrupting its own industry being the first Canadian magazine on Alexa for business and working with Singularity University on their event in Edmonton, Alberta to showcase the technology talent Canada has to offer. 

Disruption Magazine covers have highlighted prominent Canadians in the technology sector and beyond, like George Strombolopolous (media personality), Michelle Romanov (ClearBanc), Tamar Huggins (multi award-winning tech entrepreneur), Andre De Grasse (Team Canada Olympian), Amber Mac (TV personality, author) and more. 

“At some point you know the platform you’ve provided needs to reach a wider audience for those sharing their amazing stories, including underrepresented groups like women and visible minorities, and those listening to them,” said Vestby. 

The magazine grew quickly to more than 70,000 subscribers in just three years, which piqued the interest of Joanne Fedeyko, CEO of Connection Silicon Valley, who saw the great work Disruption was doing, and also saw its potential. 

Fedeyko has launched several initiatives in the Bay Area and works exclusively connecting Canadian startups and corporate executives into Silicon Valley, while highlighting the best-in-class technology being developed across Canada.

“We were touched by the stories being told at Disruption Magazine Canada. As an expat Canadian, I want to give each one of them a global boost. It is time Canadian companies are recognized for the work they do in tech; from early start-ups, to scale-ups and legacy businesses who embrace new technology to better their operations. We’re excited to amplify the stories coming from North of the 49th parallel and very much look forward to shining a spotlight on the good work coming from Canadians from coast to coast to coast.”

Tomorrow will mark the maiden launch of Disruption Magazine under Connection Silicon Valley and Canadian Women’s Network, which will showcase expat Canadian women driving change and Canadian-based startups growing their businesses, from mental health apps to publicly traded technology companies, and more. Subscribe here to get it delivered to your inbox.
