Who We Are

We’re a small team of dedicated thinkers, innovators, and problem-solvers. Our team is positive, passionate, and collaborative.

We are athletes and book lovers, artists and carpenters, pastry chefs and veterans. Most important, we share a passion for learning, science, and technology. Our personalities, experiences, and interests are beautifully diverse and our unique perspectives help shape everything we do.

What We Do

We collaborate with Canada’s higher ed community, entrepreneurs, and government partners to ensure that Canada’s bright researchers, students, faculty, and entrepreneurs benefit from the technologies and tools that are critical to their success.
