Ontario has partnered with IBM Canada, Ontario Centres of Excellence and ventureLAB to open the IBM Innovation Space-Markham Convergence Centre that will provide businesses access to the technology and expertise they need to grow and compete in the global marketplace.
Reza Moridi, Minister of Research, Innovation and Science attended the grand opening today with Brad Duguid, Minister of Economic Development and Growth and Michael Chan, MPP for Markham-Unionville.
This centre is part of the IBM Innovation Incubator (I3) Project, which will help small and medium-sized enterprises fast-track the launch of new technologies and products to international clients by leveraging IBM’s technical resources. This includes cognitive business technology and a cloud-based development platform, as well as its physical space and network of customers. The I3 project is expected to create up to 2,600 jobs by 2020.
