Jimoh Ovbiagele, a co-founder of San Francisco-based ROSS Intelligence, proudly sports a “Home is Toronto” sticker on his laptop.
It’s not some patriotic shout-out to his Canadian birthplace (he grew up in Texas), nor is it purely a nostalgic nod to his days studying computer science at the University of Toronto, where the artificial intelligence-powered legal research startup was conceived.

He will be joined by fellow co-founder and ROSS CEO Andrew Arruda, as well as Toronto Mayor John Tory and U of T President Meric Gertler.
