The Guelph Lab wins a prestigious Innovation Award!

Posted on Monday, June 6th, 2016

A new project run through the Guelph Lab earned the third place, and a $10 000 prize, as part of the Civic Innovation Awards program of the McConnell Family Foundation. It is one of seven projects across the country that have been recognized as innovative forms of collaboration between cities and post-secondary institutions.

This new idea - the Civic Accelerator - will be a blend of business incubators, prototyping, and challenge competitions. It will bring together students and staff from the public and private sectors in innovation teams working to find solutions to civic problems.
