An innovative solution for the local economy.
The Tecconnect centre for entrepreneurship and innovation is exactly what it sounds like – a vibrant place for entrepreneurs to start and grow their business within a supportive and innovative environment. It’s a space and community that encourages the development of new ideas that transform industries and shape the future.
With a vision to diversify the economy through the tech industry, Whipcord Edge has been a key supporter in the creation of this unique business incubator. Whipcord Edge also continues to provide IT support for Tecconnect’s internal network and phone system in an environment that allows tenants to build their businesses by leveraging infrastructure services.
Through a robust network of local, provincial and national industry connections along with partnerships with post-secondary institutions and government agencies, the Tecconnect team works towards the common goal of helping entrepreneurs succeed. Tecconnect continues to be an integral part of the community and its impact has been proven through the continued achievements of its current clients and graduates, as well as the creation of 95 jobs in the technology sector.
“Whipcord has been integral to our business operations. Their quality services can be passed on to our clients and allow us to continue our valuable operations within the community.”
