WatCO and Evercloak: Commercializing the intellectual wealth at the University of Waterloo

When innovative technology is transferred from research to the marketplace, it can have such a transformative impact on society. From improving the quality of life to enhacing business production and job growth.

Join us for the next GEDI Exchange webinar featuring WatCO with special guest Evercloak, as they discuss one of the ways of commercializing the profusion of innovation to be found at the University of Waterloo.


Join us as we sit down with some of the best and brightest to discuss innovation of today and tomorrow!

More than ever, our society and economy needs innovation to thrive and stride into the future.  Fortunately, at the University of Waterloo and in its surrounding ecosystem, we have many of Canada's leading enterprises working on and succeeding at doing just that.  Some are established and transforming rapidly to lead in the world around us.  Others are new, you’ve likely never heard of them before, but are the bright sparks we need to shine light on our path forward.
 
At UWaterloo, we created the GEDI Exchange to bring these bright sparks together to start a fire: to pool ideas, find ways to cooperate and collaborate, to solve problems better, to address new markets and customers … in short, to get something cooking.  It really is a race out there to find the best ideas and innovators, and to team up with them.  Tune into this webinar series to find out who they are, what they do, and get connected with them.
 
We’ll keep it short too: these days we’re all in many webinars.  So just 30 minutes: 20 minutes for our GEDI Exchange members and ecosystem partners to present new ideas, and 10 minutes audience Q&A.
