The first lab & incubator of its kind in Canada – our Hardware Catalyst Initiative is almost here!
“HCI will offer participants 24/7 access to a state-of-the-art lab and face time with a dedicated advisory team of industry experts. With direct access to tools to develop their hardware and technology platforms, these promising tech companies will have the support they need to grow and scale locally and be ready to compete globally, sooner. The inaugural cohort of HCI participants will begin their training in January 2020, and ventureLAB intends to support five to 10 companies each year through this initiative.
“Through this project, 40 companies will be supported to commercialize 15 new technologies, which will create over 200 new, highly skilled jobs over five years.”
