Inno-Centre Canada has established yet another affiliate firm with the creation of Inno-Centre Guelph (ICG), with $200,000 in start-up funding from the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Food (OMAF). The announcement brings to an end a three-year quest to establish a coaching and commercialization facility in the city, joining similar centres in Ottawa, Edmonton and Montreal. Guelph is considered an ideal locale for an Inno-Centre, given its high concentration of life science and agri-food companies and research.
