"The entrepreneurial journey is new to us, and Innovate Niagara has provided us with the mentorship, courses, and access to funding that has proven to be beneficial to our growth. Through Innovate Niagara, we’ve had free access to seminars and workshops, which lucky for us, seemed to be timed perfectly for our milestones. Because the education was in direct reflection of our knowledge gaps, I was able to ask extremely specific questions to the facilitators, which directly impacted the decisions we made to propel Intuitive Shipping forward."

We are currently residing in this tech incubator and are being supported by Innovate Niagara as they provide mentorship and guidance to ensure the success of our business. They have been great at supporting us through fund raising initiatives and grant applications which has given us the resources we need to succeed. They have also provided significant amounts of actionable market research data which has helped us understand our target audience in more detail.”

"Innovate Niagara has been key to our growth as a company this year. Meeting with Chris and having his guidance in sorting out some of our financial systems was instrumental in the progress we were able to achieve this year. His suggestion that we participate in the Social Enterprise Pitch Competition also paid off when we earned both prizes, totaling $3000! We will look forward to assembling a marketing plan and testing which avenues are the most beneficial in the new year."
