Welcome to the NORCAT Innovation Centre
This is a place where business gets done. We believe research is translating money into knowledge and innovation is translating knowledge into money. The latter is what we do – we partner with community stakeholders to help start and grow innovative companies.
To accomplish this we provide an array of dynamic programs, services, and space. However, be forewarned - our entrepreneurial program is selective and involves a lot of homework! As an entrepreneur you need to be serious and ready to listen, learn, and contribute to our ecosystem.
We offer tenancy, be it short-term or long-term, with co-location working space, desks, lab / shop facilities, phones, meeting rooms, and lounges – where you are encouraged to “hang out” and have “serendipitous collisions” with other like-minded entrepreneurs to share ideas, enhance your network, and discuss challenges and opportunities to help you expedite the building of your business. We believe in the mantra that you must “collaborate to compete”.
For our entrepreneurial clients, we know starting, building, and growing a business is not easy, but we believe by providing you with the right place, the right advisors, and the right services, you will be inspired and have the confidence to do something that so few people have the courage to even think about. As mentioned above, be forewarned - our entrepreneurial program is selective and involves a lot of homework! Status quo need not apply.
