Innovation Guelph (IG) is a distinguished non-profit organization that provides support for inventive startups to flourish and succeed. They offer a diverse range of mentorship-driven programs, workshops, events, and opportunities that are specially tailored to meet the demands of modern entrepreneurs.
Programming at IG is focused on assisting and supporting entrepreneurs throughout their journey, with two core areas of focus: (1) to increase the availability of quality support for companies founded and led by women-identifying entrepreneurs and (2) to support the growth of companies contributing to making the world a healthier place for all.
Since 2011, IG has supported over 1,430 companies, from startup to scaleup across various stages and industries. IG helps strengthen the entrepreneurial ecosystem by creating programs and workshops that support innovative companies from four main sectors: cleantech, advanced manufacturing, agri-innovation (including food & beverage), and classic technology.
Although located in Guelph, Ontario, IG supports entrepreneurs across Ontario, and with the addition of its women-focused RhyzeUp! program, IG now maintains and helps entrepreneurs across Canada, with clients throughout most provinces and territories.
I can’t say enough about the extent of support received from Innovation Guelph. The organization is hands down the most impactful to me and Amintro, and I count my blessings to be a part of the Innovation Guelph community.– Charlene Nadalin, Founder and CEO Amintro”
