ABOUT

October, 16, 2017, Mississauga, ON

Innovation4D connects the venture capital community with the SME’s working in the Xerox Research Centre of Canada’s Innovation Hub. This premier event features guest speakers, a tour of a state-of-the-art pilot plant, pitch sessions, and networking opportunities.

Since 2014, the Xerox Research Centre of Canada has been nurturing an innovation hub in Mississauga, Ontario. With the help of our hub partners – RIC Centre and GreenCentre Canada – we’ve developed an ecosystem focused on advanced materials, advanced manufacturing, and Cleantech.

The Four Dimensions (4D) of innovation for any successful venture include:

  • Market-focused innovative technology
  • Access to capital
  • Strong management team
  • Industry expertise on scaling-up and de-risking

The Innovation Hub aims to help shape and grow municipal, provincial, and federal economies by:

  • Capturing synergies from industry, public, and academic investments
  • De-risking the development and deployment of commercially viable materials technologies
  • Bridging the gaps between laboratory demonstration and industrial scale manufacturing.
  • Providing open innovation opportunities for pre-competitive research projects among founding members [and future constituents]

Learn how the Innovation Hub recently helped Toronto earn a spot on the Top 10 Cities for Corporate innovation.

We are actively seeking new opportunities to connect and grow. Please contact us if you’d like to learn more.
