GUELPH, ON - Together, Innovation Guelph and Bioenterprise Corporation are building on the success of last year's event by hosting their second Innovation Expo at the Grand Guelph on October 3, 2019, from 12 to 6 p.m.
This exciting event, the largest of its kind in Guelph, is free to the public and celebrates the success and growth of more than 150 recipients collaboratively supported through Innovation Guelph's Fuel Injection Program and Bioenterprise's Seed Funding Program, funded by the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario).
The Expo tradeshow floor showcases more than 80 vendors from companies across southern Ontario that have leveraged the federal seed funding to successfully launch significant and exciting innovations and inject over $100 million (and growing) back into our economy!
