We were fortunate enough to attend the first day of this amazing two day conference; OCE Discovery! If you have not heard of this conference before, as an entrepreneur you’re going to want too!

“Discovery is Canada’s leading innovation-to-commercialization conference. Hosted by Ontario Centres of Excellence, Discovery brings together key players from industry, academia, government, the investment community as well as entrepreneurs and students to collaborate.

Garnering over 3,600 attendees and more than 540 exhibitors in 2017, Discovery is a showcase of leading-edge technologies, best practices and research from sectors such as health, manufacturing, digital media and cleantech. Renowned keynote speakers and panels ignite discussion, knowledge-sharing and new perspectives. Networking opportunities feature key influencers from government, academia, industry and leading sectors.”

We saw over 500 amazing exhibitors displaying leading-edge technology and businesses. It was so inspiring to see all of these young businesses, and their energy! In the photo below you might recognize these two local Barrie businesses! Tandempark and Good Green Earth Co. Both of these businesses participated in Georgian College’s Henry Bernick Entrepreneurship Centre Build Program.
