The Innovation Cluster is partnering for their second year with the Peterborough Exhibition to present an “Innovation Zone” inside the Memorial Center. The zone will be showcasing the many local innovative businesses that make up Peterborough and the Kawarthas.
From Aug. 11 – Aug. 12, the Innovation Zone will be presenting over a dozen business booths inside the Memorial Center building following to the entrance of the exhibition. Visitors are welcome to tour the many booths to learn more information about the businesses that make Peterborough so great.
“The Innovation Zone is a great way for our region’s most promising startups to come together and show the local community what services and products they offer to grow the economy,” says Michael Skinner, President and CEO of the Innovation Cluster.
Not only will visitors see what small businesses are helping to grow our economy, the innovative advancements in these businesses will be showcased as well.
Last year, the Innovation Cluster partnered with the Peterborough Agricultural Society to bring awareness to the innovation in agriculture technology around the area. Startup businesses like Chimp Treats and Aclarus, clients of the Innovation Cluster, showcased their products to the community.
“Showcasing these businesses last year brought awareness to the advancements being made throughout Peterborough in agriculture, and was a celebration of the success local farmers and businesses have made in the area,” says Skinner.
Since the “Innovate Ag Zone” was such a hit in 2016, this year’s zone will feature a range of innovation sectors including agtech, cleantech, digital and young entrepreneurs that are a part of FastStart.
