Moving innovation from the laboratory to the market is not only critical to maintaining Canada’s position as a global scientific leader, but it’s fundamental to our long-term growth and prosperity. This reality is widely recognized across the national science, technology, and innovation landscape, and there are a number of organizations – each with a unique focus and operating model – enjoying successes in this area.
This panel will bring together the leaders of a number of high profile incubator and accelerators from across Canada, representing sectors as diverse as information communication technology, health sciences, and physics. Profiling five case studies, the panel will demonstrate that there is no one-size-fits-all solution for innovation, but rather a mosaic of models, which together can get Canada to where it needs to be vis-à-vis growing global competition.
