Waterloo Innovation Summit

Join some of the world's top influencers to explore what governments, universities and business can do to turn ideas into enterprises.

Location: Communitech / Mike & Ophelia Lazaridis Quantum-Nano Centre / University of Waterloo Science Teaching Complex / The Centre for International Governance Innovation

The Waterloo Innovation Summit gathers leading influencers to share their ideas about developing products, scaling up to meet demand and managing disruption when things that seemed so new and edgy a moment ago suddenly lose ground to competition. Strictly business? Not at all. Governments, universities and entrepreneurs all have roles to fill in making innovation the growth imperative.
