Startups and the Minister of Research and Innovation

I was at The Code Factory for a great session with John Wilkinson, Minister of Research and Innovation for Ontario.  It was a great discussion between the minister and various start-ups in Ottawa.

The start-ups present shared their experiences and woes.  John talked about the great work his team is working on and future developments.  He also brought to attention the challenges governments face with coming up with programs as they have to be fair to all.

So if you are one of those that recently graduated from you past job and now looking to start a business the next areas of growth are clean technology is huge globally so is digital media.

A couple of great sites to check out are Ontario.ca/future and ontario.ca/innovation

Ian Graham will share his thoughts on this on The Road less travelled.
