Westhill Innovation

About Westhill Innovation

Westhill Innovation, a trailblazer in solar-powered mobility solutions, specializes in solar-electric technology for refrigerated transport and solar-powered micro-mobility products.

Their problem

During its initial phases, Westhill Innovation actively sought the guidance of Innovation Factory. The company required industry connections, business mentorship, and vital funding aid to navigate its early stages effectively.

Our solution

Innovation Factory equipped Westhill Innovation with expert mentors and guided them through funding opportunities, from Industrial Research Assistance Program (IRAP) and the Clean Tech fund. Innovation Factory helped provide exposure through media engagements and key industry introductions, like the Women’s Entrepreneurship Power Panel, broadened their reach. Collaboration with Innovation Factory partners, such as Mohawk College, further facilitated product development.

Company success

Capitalizing on Innovation Factory’s resources, has catalyzed Westhill’s success, positioning them for continuous growth in the solar-powered mobility sector. Westhill has secured several partnerships, including Loblaw as they move to electrify its private fleet.


“We recognized very early that there was a significant opportunity to educate the industry and evolve sustainable transportation technology solutions. The value of working with an accelerator such as Innovation Factory is the access to business advisory support and mentors, industry connections, market intelligence and research, and physical space to collaborate and host events and meetings that new and growing companies do not always have access to. The support we were given has positioned Westhill well for further growth and scale.”

– Gina Succi, Co-Founder
