Over the past 15 years, the Innovation Centre has become Northwestern Ontario’s leading organization in entrepreneurial development by utilizing lean start-up methodology with a stage-gate process. Using the same principles, the Innovation Centre has partnered with the Business Development Bank of Canada to create a strategic program for SME’s who seek innovative strategies for survival in today’s competitive marketplace. Our team will work hand in hand with businesses through the following distinct streams:
- Working with small and medium sized businesses to identify problems, and through an innovative process, solve those problems.
- Designing a custom corporate innovation program with small to medium sized businesses to develop their innovation from within and grow their business.
- Offering staff development training on topics designed to develop innovative thinking within organizations. Creativity development, design thinking and fostering an innovative culture are a few examples of training options.
