'Unleash Toronto' will be the second hackathon hosted by the LOFT. On December 1st, members of the Toronto start-up community will join our organization’s brightest individuals from across the Investment, Group Functions, U.S., Canadian and Asia Divisions. Over the course of 2 days they will pitch, build and refine new business offerings and/or products and services that answer the following question:

“How might we help customers redefine and reimagine what it means to invest with Manulife through the use of new business models, channels technology?”
