Guiding Innovation to be Market Ready

It takes more than a great idea to make it to market successfully.  It takes a plan, a team, money  … and it takes know-how.  Statistically, most new ventures fail, and not because they are bad ideas.  Often, a lack of entrepreneurial skills and experience makes the critical difference.

The CanadianInnovation Centre has assisted thousands of entrepreneurs and innovators with the commercialization process.  We understand the process of taking new product to market.  We know the many pitfalls along the way, and more valuable still, we know how they can be avoided.  The Canadian Innovation Centre has the services, tools and resources that can help you move your venture along the commercialization path.
