This Wednesday Innovation Factory hosted an Ontario Network of Entrepreneurs (ONE) meeting, featuring all 17 Regional Innovation Centres (RICs) from across Ontario!
Funded by the Government of Ontario, the Ontario Network of Entrepreneurs is Ontario’s innovation system. The ONE is made up of regional and sector focused organizations (including all Ontario RICs) designed to help Ontario-based entrepreneurs rapidly grow their companies, and create jobs.
The day was led by the Ontario Ministry for Research & Innovation and provided a unique experience for all RIC employees. We were able to meet and mingle with our counterparts from all across the province, from Thunder Bay to Windsor and all the other regions in between.
Included were a number of workshops to facilitate idea sharing and collaboration across RICs. We were very proud to have hosted such a worthwhile, memorable gathering.
Thank you to the Ministry of Research & Innovation for organizing the meeting and to all of the RICs who made it all the way to #HamOnt!
